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.
