Flexible and Nanobio Device Lab

















      Our FAND research goal is to develop 'Self-powered Flexible Electronic Systems' using high performance nano-materials and soft electronic technologies. This flexible technology could provide interesting opportunities for printable electronics such as flexible displays, artificial skins, biosensors, roll-up communication, and biomedical applications for human body integration. First, our laboratory is involved in the development of flexible energy systems such as self-powered nanogenerator and batteries for not only operating the mobile electronics/sensor electronics but also convirting the tiny movements of human into electricity. Second, our studies  are also interested in developing new flexible nanomaterials using laser material interaction such as excimer, CW, solid state laser, and Flash lamp in the application fields of 3D nano-transistor, localized high temperature process (over 1000 Celcius) that are compatible with flexible substrates.

      Third, another research aim is to develop flexible LSI (large scale integration of nanotransistors) and high density memory on plastic substarates using advanced self-assembling nanotechnolgy. Finally, we want to integrate flexible inorganic optoelectronics (e.g. f-GaN or GaAs) into invivo biomedical applications for detecting or even treating the human diseases.  

    - Flexible Self-powered Energy Source  

    - Flexible Large Scale Integration (f-LSI) and High-density Memory  

    - Flexible Optoelectronics for Biomedical Applications

    - Laser Material Interaction for Nanomaterials & Flexible Applications
