Tumors create an oxygen-deficient environment in the body. By developing a nanoparticle that emits light in oxygen-deficient environments, our group hopes to achieve better tumor detection.

A new material developed in our lab stays liquid more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit below its expected freezing point, but a light touch can cause it to form yellow crystals that glow under ultraviolet light.

Our lab group developed a nerve agent detection sensor that only requires bare eyes to observe the presence of dangerous nerve gas.

A new ‘super plastic’ that can direct heat away from its source opens up a wide range of possibilities for making more efficient electronic devices- Joint work of Prof. Kim and Prof. Pipe (Mechanical Engineering).
