KU Thin Film Research Group
Thin films are the basis for modern microelectronics and a large number of technologies. Thin films are also one of the most important tools for the preparation of novel materials. Although application oriented, growth and characterization of thin films has been an important subject for both basic and applied physics research. The focus of our research is on growth, characterization, and applications of various thin films and devices including superconductor, ferroelectric and magnetic materials, etc.
While the size of electronic devices continuously decreases into nanometer regime as predicted by Moore's law, nanosicence has emerged as one of the most prominent research areas in 21st century. One of our new research focuses has been on growth of various nano-matters including nano-particles, nanowires, nanotubes and their applications in various devices. We also are developing novel tools for characterization and manipulation of the nano-matters and devices.
