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.
The Center for Nano-Bio Convergence is responsible for developing novel methodologies to measure and manipulate single cells, tissues, and biomaterials at a bio-molecular nano-scale using nanotechnology based on lasers, ion beams, and nano-probes. These new nano-bio methods are expected to foster innovative scientific and technological biomedical possibilities.
