Acoustical Technologies Singapore Pte Ltd, Singapore
Woon Siong Gan obtained his PhD in Feb 1969, from the physics department of Imperial College London. He is the first to introduce transport theory to statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics in 1966. The title of his PhD thesis is Transport Theory in Magnetoacoustics. In the past, transport theory has been used only in kinetic theory and neutrons trasport theory. He is also the first to introduce symmetry properties to acoustic fields in 2007 which has been demonstrated by the successful fabrication of acoustic metamaterials. He has published the book Acoustical Imaging;Techniques and Applications for Engineers by John Wiley and Sons in 2012 and seveal other papers. He is also the Founder and current President of the Society of Acoustics(Singapore) and the Founding Director of Acoustical Technologies Singapore Pte Ltd, a technologies company with experties in acosutcial imaging.
