Professor Kilwon Cho, Hyojin Bong, and Dr. Sae Byeok Jo of the Department of Chemical Engineeringhave developeda new synthetic method for high-throughput production of large-area conductinggraphenefilms. The research outcome was featured on the cover page of the renowned international journal Nanoscale. Grapheneis one of the core materials for the transparent electrodes in soft electronics due to its highelectricconductivity, flexibility, mechanical strength and transparency. The feasibility of the commercialization ofgraphenefilms depends on the efficient“scale-up” production of ..
One of the most basic yet important surgical skills to keep a patient alive and intact may be closing wounds. It seems that doctors will now get the job done with more ease thanks to new, nontoxic surgical glue that instantly seals a bleeding wound and helps it heal without a scar or inflammation. Inspired by nature’s wonders, Korean scientists at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) have developed a light-activated, mussel protein-based bioadhesive (LAMBA) that works on the same principles as mussels attaching to underwater surfaces and insects maintaining structural ..
