About Us

Welcome to the Smart Materials for Energy Lab. at UNIST. Our research group is interested in the overlap between fundamental of soft and low dimensional materials and applied studies of energy storage and flexible thin-film devices such as alkali ion batteries, metal-oxygen batteries, flexible memories, and solar cells. We design and fabricate smart electronic devices using modern state-of-the-art techniques and advancing the new materials system. The research is being carried out on functional organic and inorganic materials. Please feel free to contact Prof. Kang at to get more information.
