The group focuses on novel synthesis of inorganic nanomaterials optimized for applications in ultra-sensitive chemical sensors, highly eficient energy storage devices, and functional nanoelectronics including nanofiber-based transistors and transparent electrodes.
Research areas in Haeshin Lee's group are dealing with Design and synthesis functional biomaterials and inspired by mussels and geckos; Development of nano-carriers for a variety of pharmaceuticals; Development of new surface chemistry for material-independent surface modifications; Self-assembly of peptides and proteins; Protein folding in solutions; and development of new gecko-mimetic adhesives.
Soft Nanomaterials Laboratory is the research group led by professor Sang Ouk Kim. The group actively explores block copolymer nanolithography, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and organic solar cells and LEDs.
This center aims to study the origin of microstructural instability and novel properties of nanostructured materials. Various nano-materials processing technologies related to nanopowders, in particular, are being developed.
The Center is organized into three teams: The first team is the Optical MEMS Lab which has focused on the development of MEMS sensors and quantum key distribution systems. The second team is the Nano-Bio System Lab which has developed HTS (high throughput system) microfluidic chips and nano-bio sensors based on a nanomechanical piezoelectric cantilever and optical waveguide. The Bio-Robotics and Nano-Mechatronics Lab constitutes the third team which is working on the development of nano-bio robots and studying nano surface engineering.
