Professor Joon Hak Oh Develops Liquid-Phase Sensors with High Sensitivity and Selectivity
A research team consisting of Prof. Joon Hak Oh, Moo Yeol Lee (Department of Chemical Engineering, POSTECH), and Prof. Bumjoon J. Kim (Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, KAIST) has developed highly sensitive and selective liquid-phase sensors based on a solvent-resistant organic semiconducting layer. The research outcome was highlighted as the cover article in Advanced Materials which is a renowned international journal in the field of materials.Sensors based on organic field-effect transistor (OFET) platform have attracted great interest due to their use as light-weight, low..
Professor Dong Sung Kim’s Electrolyte-assisted Electrospinning Featured in Advanced Materials
A research team comprised of Prof. Dong Sung Kim and Sang Min Park from the Department of Mechanical Engineering has developed a novel fabrication technique, called electrolyte-assisted electrospinning (ELES), for a self-assembled, free-standing nanofiber membrane. The research outcome was featured on the Inside Cover of the renowned international journal Advanced Materials.Nanofiber membranes have attracted substantial interests in recent years due to their large surface area, high surface to volume ratio, and porosity. These advantages have expanded their applications to sensors, filtration,..
