The Nanoscale Devices and Materials Physics Laboratory at SKKU is involved in the design, synthesis, fabrication and characterization of nanostructures and nanosystems. Our approach is to perform fundamental scientific research and to establish core research and technology platforms in order to develop a new understanding of nanoscale phenomena, to construct new nanoscale structures, devices and systems and to use these novel nanoscale systems as a tool-kit to develop new applications in science and engineering.
We aim to provide a complete technology development loop to enable innovative exploitation of nanosystems specifically within emerging Information and Communication Technology (ICT) application areas, e.g., nanoscale electronics within applications areas at the interface between ICT and life sciences, e.g., nanobiotechnology.
Research is currently active in the development of hybrid technologies based on combining microelectronics and nanotechnology fabrication methods with the protocols and techniques developed within fields such as biochemistry and genetics. The objective of this work is to enable cross-fertilization of the two fields of research and to thereby develop and exploit new nanoscale research tools in the service of engineering and the physical and life sciences.
We explore the potential applications of low dimensional nanostructures to exploit their unique electronic, optical, magnetic, optoelectronic, electrochemical, and electromechanical properties. Research on nanostructured materials is highly interdisciplinary because of different synthetic techniques involved and different characterization tools used. We employ the top-down and the bottom-up approaches to create unique opportunities for the development of next generation enabling technology based on low dimensional nanomaterials and devices.
Our laboratory is strongly affiliated with other in-campus research institutes and centers including Institute of Basic Science, Department of Energy Science, SKKU Advanced Institute of Nano Technology, Institute for Basic Science etc. This provides easy access to those state-of-art research facilities required for successful engagement of top-notch research programmes we offer.
