Recent wearable electronic devices based on rigid device components are uncomfortable to wear. In order to reduce physical discomfort and fatigue against wearing, electronic devices need to be flexible and stretchable. Therefore, wearable Electronics research group focuses on fabrication of the hybrid technologies based on inorganic and organic components and development of novel technologies to maximize stretchability and flexibility. This contribute nationally to expansion of wearable electronics industry market.

Our goal is not only to explore new science and technology by developing future electronics for humans, but also to transfer our knowledge to real industries. For example, we are actively collaborating global companies in Korea and USA, including Samsung Display, Samsung Techwin, LG Electronics, USA CooperVision, etc. Our work is highly multi-disciplinary, involving studies in material science and engineering, chemistry, physics, and biology, and our students will be advantageous to upgrade their job careers.
