FNMR(Functional Nanostructured Materials Research Lab.) is investigating the multi-functional harmonized ceramic/metal/polymer and composite materials via Nanotechnology. We aim to apply in variety technology fields of Information(IT), Environment(ET) and Biology technology(BT), such as electronic device, energy harvesting sensor and bio applications.
Inkjet printing is a material-conserving deposition technique used for liquid phase materials. The process essentially involves the ejection of a fixed quantity of ink in a chamber, from a nozzle through a sudden, quasi-adiabatic reduction of the chamber volume via piezoelectric action.
Electronic and Optical Materials
Transparent electrodes are an essential element of numerous ubiquitous devices used by billions of people such as displays, photovoltaic and lighting. Today, tin-doped indium oxide (ITO) is by far the dominant material due to its optoelectronic performance. However, ITO has certain problems
Carbonous anode materials receive wide-range applications in commercialized LIBs, but the gravimetric and volumetric capacity of carbon materials is limited. The rapid development of electronic devices and EVs demands a much higher energy density as well as a higher power density and a smaller irreversible capacity for anodes
A permanent magnet is an object made from a material that is magnetized and creates its own persistent magnetic field. Permanent magnets are made from "hard" ferromagnetic materials such as alnico and ferrite that are subjected to special processing in a powerful magnetic field during manufacture
Sensor Materials and Devices
Detection and quantification of biological and chemical species are critical to many areas of health care and the life sciences, from diagnosing disease to the discovery and screening of new drug molecules. To achieve rapid response, high sensitivity and label-free detection, devices based on 1D nanostructures
Thermal Related Materials
Carbon nanotube (CNT) posesses excellent thermal property with electrical conductivity. Such properties advantages make CNT based polymer composite with excellent electrically and thermally conductive property. We have focused on the fabrication of the excellent property CNT / PMMA composite.
Magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles have been explored for various biomedical applications that include their use in cell labeling/cell separation, magnetofection to facilitate gene delivery, as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to induce local hyperthermia in response to an external alternating magnetic field
