Tengku Hasnan Tengku Abdul Aziz is a Research Fellow of organic optoelectronic at the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). He received his degree and master degree in Physics and Nanoelectronics from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 2005 and 2010 respectively. He worked as a Science Officer in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia before pursuing his PhD under Federal Scholarship and complete his studies in 2017. In October 2017, he joined IMEN and was appointed as group leader for Organic Printed Electronics in 2019. Tengku Hasnan is an expert in organic optoelectronics and working on various nanostructure and 2D materials. His current research interest is in a metal-organic framework (MOF) based on organic semiconductors for medical, environmental, and agricultural-based optical sensors. As a trained Engineer and Physicist, Tengku Hasnan is a hands-on expert and has experience in designing various types of optical sensors such as surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and localized surface plasmon resonance, (LSPR). His knowledge which he nurtures in Physics and as trained engineered in nanoelectronics enables him to design and enhance the optical signal by combining it with nanotechnology which is crucial for the optical sensors field. In addition, he also involves in certification and quality control for the commercialization of biomedical peritoneal dialysis in 2020. He is a member of IEEE and the Malaysian Solid-State Society and has been awarded several research grants nationally and internationally including the latest grant on enhancing the optical output by plasmonic resonance.
