Research (연구)

Our laboratory focuses on fabrications of wireless, wearable opto-electronic devices as free-form electronics with IoT (Internet of Things) technology, including transparent, foldable, stretchable, 4D-printable, or self-healable properties of devices. We seek to exploit Human-centered ICT Convergence, by studying interesting properties of nanomaterials, and developing novel methods for fabrication of wearable devices with unconventional geometries (i.e. transparent, foldable, stretchable, 4D-printable, or self-healable structures) using diverse nanomaterials.

Our goal is to explore new science and technology by combining electronics with human life and environment, and to transfer our knowledge to industries. This work is highly multidisciplinary, involving studies in materials science and engineering, electronics, chemistry, biology, device physics, and 3D nanofabrications.

우리 연구실은 형태를 자유롭게 변형할 수 있는, 사물인터넷 기반의 웨어러블 전자 디바이스 제작 연구를 진행합니다. 투명하면서 접거나 잡아당길 수 있고, 4차원 프린팅 가능하며, 자가치유 특성을 지니는 전자 디바이스 및 디스플레이 구현이 그 예입니다. 다양한 나노재료들을 개발하여, 인간중심의 ICT 융합 연구를 추구합니다.

또한 이들 분야에 대한 다양한 연구 결과들을 실제 산업에 적용하는 것을 목표로 합니다. 우리 연구실에서는 재료공학, 화학, 물리, 나노소자 제조 공정 및 전자공학, 생물학 등등의 여러 학문분야에 걸친 종합적인 접근을 기반으로 연구를 수행합니다.

Our current research includes the following topics (현재 진행중인 연구분야):
  1. 1) Synthesis of novel nanomaterials (나노 신소재)
  2. 2) Transparent, foldable, stretchable, or self-healable electronics and displays
    (투명, 신축성, 자가치유 디바이스/디스플레이)
  3. 3) 4D printing and IoT technology (4D 프린팅 및 사물인터넷)
  4. 4) Wireless biosensors and implantable medical devices (무선 바이오센서/메디컬 디바이스)
