Lab Overview
Our research focuses on the fundamental properties of nano-scale materials and technological applications of converged nanomaterials. The main studies include investigation of essential properties of low-dimensional materials, such as electrical, optical and mechanical characteristics and large-area growth for practical applications. By combining these materials, new material systems of heterostructures will be artificially fabricated and studied for optoelectrical and flexible applications.
