Emerging Functional Materials

Introduction

Researches in New Functional Materials and Emerging Device Architectures group focus on the Active Architecturing Nanostructures for Energy and Environmental Issues as well as the Low-cost Manufacturing Technology for applications in sensor, solar cells, LEDs, generators etc. Active functional materials are distinctly different from passive materials. Their physical and chemical properties are so sensitive to a change in the environment such as temperature, pressure, electric field, magnetic field, optical wavelength, and adsorbed molecules. The materials utilize the native properties and functions of their own to achieve an intelligent action. We study such functional materials, devices, and systems through control of matter on the nanoscale and exploit novel properties and phenomena. Education at UNIST within the graduate program leads the students to become leading researchers and experts within their area as well as creative leaders for both academia and various nanotechnology industries.
