Carbon Nano Tube & Graphene

We are interested in every aspect of conductive materials such as electronic and mechanical properties. In addition, we want to see how they interact with other chemicals. Thus, the adsorption and mixing behavior are investigated.


Hydrogel for Biomedical Applications

We pursue fundamental understanding of hydrogel system by characterizing the structure-property relationship of given materials. Based on such relationship, we design new hydrogel system for better properties such as excellent biocompatibility, optimal mechanical strength, proper permeation of gas & nutrition and smart response to external conditions.








Fuel Cell Technology

We are investigating the atomistic/molecular mechanisms in fuel cell system, which serves to develop better materials and better configurations.
For membrane, we are investigating the nanophase-segregation consisting of water phase and polymer phase in order to understand the proton conduction within that specific material. Based on such knowledge, we design new chemical structures of membrane materials.
For electrode, we are studying i) the interface between membrane and electrode and ii) the electrochemical events on electrode.




NanoElectronics and NanoMechanics

We are interested in nano-meter scale system consisting of organic/inorganic materials to aim at developing electronic/mechanic devices. For this, we pursue fundamental understanding of tunneling, atomic displacement and molecular deformation in molecular self-assembly at various conditions.
Such fundamental understandings will enable us to achieve better stability and performance.
