My name is Ngo Duc The. NGO is my family name and Duc-The is my first name. People just call me Thế simply. I have another British name, Ryan. My name appeared in publications may be Ngo Duc The, N. D. The, D. T. Ngo, Duc-The Ngo or D-T. Ngo. I was born in 1982 in Bac Giang province, Vietnam. I am currently working as a TEM Expert in the School of Materials, University of Manchester, United Kingdom. My research focuses on nanoalanalytical transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM, STEM, aberration corrected TEM/STEM,..). Prior to Manchester, I used to work as a researcher in spintronics, TEM and energy conversion in Japan, Singapore and Denmark.

2006 – 2010: Doctor of Philosophy in Physics and Astronomy, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
I was very lucky to do my PhD in a world-leading group of magnetism led by Professor John Chapman and Dr. Stephen McVitie. My research involved nanofabrication of nanostructured magnetic thin films (continuous and patterned films) by electron beam lithography, focused ion beam and nanocharacterization using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), especially, Lorentz TEM for magnetic imaging of magnetic domains and domain walls. The object of my research was controlling and characterizing magnetic domain walls in nanostructure for spintronics and hard-disk applications. I defended my thesis on April 23rd 2010 and my thesis was published online on June 7th 2010.
2004 – 2006: Master of Science in Solid State Physics, College of Science, Vietnam National University Hanoi
I worked in Center for Materials Science with Professor Nguyen Chau, an outstanding magnetism physicist of Vietnam. My research concerned with fabrication of special nanomagnetic materials for superhard magnets and ultrasoft magnets. Metallurgical produce of materials using induction melting, arc melting and melt-spinning was my expertise. I completed my master dissertation by August 2006 with a distinction grade. One of our results was supposed to be the world record in
low rare-earth nanocomposite magnets. With only 4 at.% of Pr, we obtained a record magnetic energy product up to 17.8 MGOe (142 kJ/m3) by composing FeCo/Pr2Fe14B nanomagnetic grains in a unique system. It was published in Nanotechnology (2009) by IOP Publisher.
