Secrets of Carbon Unlocked
IBS scientists create a band gap in graphene nanowrinklesNovember 9, 2015Carbon is the basis for all known life on Earth and the carbon in our bones originates from stars whose death millions, perhaps billions, of years ago helped to shape and create our planet and the Solar System in which we dwell. Without carbon in the atmosphere life would cease to exist. It is easier to name the compounds that don’t contain carbon than the ones that do. It is as ubiquitous as life itself.Fundamental Element of Life​​Carbon is found free in nature in three allotropic forms; amorphous, graphite and diamond. Graphite is one of the softest known materials, and diamond is one of the hardest. This difference is purely because of the arrangement of atoms in each of the two forms. In graphite, hexagonal rings are joined together to form sheets that lie on top of one another. Diamond has a slightly more compact structure and its density is greater than that of graphite. The appearance of diamond is well kn… 작성자 : CMCM 2016.11.25
UNIST Celebrates the Opening of Building 101
Prestigious members of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) were invited to attend a formal ribboncutting ceremony on April 27, 2015 at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) to celebrate the completion of their Low Dimensional Carbon Materials Building. This important occasion was also an opportunity to formally introduce the three, specialized IBS research centers (Centers)hosted bythe university.Before the ribboncutting, UNIST President MuJe Cho welcomed visitors to the ceremony, followed by congratulatory speechesmade by VIP guests, including the IBS President Doochul Kim and the Ulsan Mayor Gi-hyeon Kim.To date, IBS has successfully launched 24 Centers of various types, each headed by internationally respected scientists;those located at UNIST or at other national science and technology universities are known as IBS campus research center… 작성자 : CMCM 2016.11.25
Prof. Ruoff awarded 2014 David Turnbull Lectureship
IBS Director of Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials honored for pioneering research related to carbon materialsThe Materials Research Society’s (MRS) David Turnbull Lectureship Award recognizes the career of a scientist who has made outstanding contributions to understanding materials phenomena and properties through research, writing, and lecturing, as exemplified by the late David Turnbull of Harvard University. This year's award will honor Rodney S. Ruoff, Director of the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM) at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), and Distinguished Professor at the Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology (UNIST) for "pioneering discoveries related to carbon materials and their innovative preparation, characterization, and mechanics." The award will be presented at the 2014 MRS Fall Meeting Awards Ceremony in Boston on Wednesday, December 3, and Ruoff will deliver the David Turnbull Lecture on December 4.Devoting his career to r… 작성자 : CMCM 2016.11.25
