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.
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.
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.
