Professor Yong Taek Hong’s research team has come up with next generational developments in display.  With shape changes in an electrode as it expands or contracts, there are changes in the electrical use.  This can be used for displays, electrical skin, robots, and other developments.
 
There has been other research conducted in this development over the years, but nothing has come close to this research.  It has been difficult to manufacture metal thin film above 20-30%.  However, the research team came up with a solution to this problem and has led to innovations in technology.
 
The research team has come up with a cheap Polydimethylsiloxane and nickel particle that will improve the process.  Even when the electrical resistance goes below 20Ω, the product will still function.
 
This material uses new materials and new processes to minimize electrical use and allows for easier contact at the surfaces to make the process much more efficient and effective.
 
The research team was able to come up with a display product that effectively reduces electrical use.  In the future, this technology will be used not only for display, but for products like electrical skin and robots to improve research in those areas.
 
This research was supported by the Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning’s Global Frontier Project in Nano Soft Electronics.  The research has been published in the May 21 issue of Advanced Materials.

Writer: admin

The Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning’s “Future Pioneering Technology Project” led to profitable results.  A research center led by Seoul National University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Jung Hoon Lee, called CMIPs research group, worked with Biois Corp (Sung Chun Kim) and Asan Hospital (Heung Bum Oh) to develop an in-vitro diagnostic system for breast cancer that was contracted out to an overseas hospital for $2 million. 

 

The CMIPs research group developed in-vitro diagnostics products for cancer and other chronic diseases for a $2 million contract with American companies Care Excel, Memorial Hermann Hospital, etc.  With the support from the “Future Pioneering Technology Project,” they were also able to acquire patents for their technology.
 
This in-vitro cancer and chronic disease diagnostic system uses aptamer-based biochip technology to diagnose liver, lung, colon, gastric, and breast cancer.  The biochip checks the proteins in a biological sample to accurately analyze the problems.  Aptamer assesses DNA or RNA strands to analyze the issues.
 
The CMIPs research group is currently assessing other projects using this core technology.  Biois Corps will provide aptamer biochips technology to UC Berkeley, UCLA Hospital, and Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Health System (VAGLAHS).  This will provide support for breast cancer and lung disease research.  The research group will also work with Busan University and others to develop nano and IT technology on new projects. 
 
Professor Jung Hoon Lee stated, “Due to the aging population, problems like cancer and diseases will become even more prevalent.  With this technology we will be at the forefront of the global diagnostic market.”

Fish Gill Wrinkle Secrets Revealed by Joint Research Team by Seoul National University Professor Ho Young Kim and Seogang University Professor Won Jeong Kim

- Study published online on PNAS

The wrinkles on fish gills improve the efficiency of oxygen exchange, revealed a Korean research team.  Professor Ho Young Kim from Seoul National University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering along with Professor Won Jeong Kim from Seogang University’s Mechanical Engineering stated on the 2nd that they found the secrets of fish gill wrinkle shapes. 
 
 The research team analyzed the gills of 250 fish of 75 different types.  They found that the lamellae, which is the most basic structure of fish gills, maintained equidistant from one another regardless of fish size or type. 

According to the research data, fish gills increase the surface area that comes into contact with flowing water, and improves the oxygen exchange.  However, if the distance between wrinkles is too small, it is difficult for water to pass the fish gills and makes it difficult for oxygen exchange.  Therefore, the distance between wrinkles must be perfect so that there are no difficulties. 
 
This research did not approach the experiments in an anatomy sense, but through existing fluid dynamic analysis.  The world-renowned PNAS published the results online on May 20 (Thesis title: Optimal lamellar arrangement in fish gills).
 
Researcher Keun Hwan Park stated, “Although there has been considerable research into fish gills over the years, this research had more hydrodynamic results.  This research on the oxygen exchange in the gills will improve the efficiency in the future.”
