The research of Jung's Lab focuses on investigating new synthetic routes for low dimensional nanomaterials and engineering their molecular structures. We also develop nanomanufacturing processes such as assembly, transfer and integration of nanomaterials and nanostructured architectures and study underlying fundamental science. Especially we are interested in sp2 carbon nanostructured materials such as nanotubes, graphene, nanostructured graphite, and extremely narrow silicon nanowires and their assemblies that have well-defined atomic structures.
Ongoing projects are: developing nano-sensors for chemicals, optical and ion detection, highly conductive and mechanically enhanced nanocarbon networks and fibers, and multifunctional and high performance energy storage devices. Our works are in the areas of material science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and solid-state physics.
