UNIST Introduces Novel Method to Grow Elastic Diamonds
​Diamonds is the strongest naturally occurring material on Earth. It is also renowned for its incomparable properties, such as high stiffness, exceptional thermal conductivity, high chemical resistance, and high optical transparency. Although these remarkable properties of diamond make it highly desirable for many scientific and technological applications, progress has been slow due to its brittleness. A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has unveiled that brittle diamonds can be bent and stretched elastically when made into ultrafine needles. This breakthrough has been jointly conducted by Distinguished Professor Feng Ding’s team from the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at UNIST, in collaboration with an international team of researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), City University of Hong Kong, and Nanyang Technological University. The results of the study has been reported this week in th… 작성자 : CMCM 2018.10.11

RUOFF of Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials was ranked in the categories of materials science, physics, and chemistry for three years in a row from 2015 after his name first appeared on the list in materials science and chemistry in 2014. Among the only 20 researchers whose names were mentioned in three categories t… 작성자 : CMCM 2018.10.11
Rodney S. Ruoff being awarded the "James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials" from the American Physical Society
 Rodney S. (Rod) Ruoff, Distinguished Professor at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) and Director of the Institute for Basic Science Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (IBS-CMCM), has been awarded the James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials from the American Physical Society in recognition of his outstanding achievement in the science and application of new materials. Professor Ruoff has made and reported many scientific discoveries, and this prize was awarded “for pioneering contributions to the scalable synthesis, materials science and applications of graphene and graphene derivatives.” The prize will be awarded to Ruoff at the 2018 Spring Meeting of the American Physical Society to be held March 5-9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Ruoff will also present an award lecture at this scientific meeting.Ruoff and his research team first published on graphene in 1999 in two peer-reviewed articles; one in the Journal of Applied Physics an… 작성자 : CMCM 2017.11.14
Decorating Single Layer and Bilayer Graphene with Useful Chemical Groups
- IBS scientists develop a new platform to attach chemical groups on graphene lying on a silica/silicon substrate - Researchers at the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology disclosed a new method to add chemical groups on (that is, to "functionalize") single layer (SLG) and bilayer (BLG) graphene lying on silica/silicon. This study, recently published online in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) also suggests how decorated graphene serves as a platform to produce 2D materials with new characteristics.​ A single layer of carbon atoms packed in a honeycomb lattice, called graphene, is one of the most versatile materials ever made. Its excellent heat and electricity conductivity, combined with lightness and strength, offer compelling possibilities for a variety of useful functions. To better tune the properties of graphene, the use of functionalized graphene, t… 작성자 : CMCM 2017.04.05
How To Roll A Nanotube: Demystifying Carbon Nanotubes' Structure Control
A key advancement in the design of high performance carbon-based electronics  Pioneering research published in Nature by Professor Feng Ding's team from the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), in collaboration with Professor Jin Zhang's team, at Peking University and colleagues, has demonstrated how to control the synthesis of special tiny carbon cylinders known as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), in order to synthesize horizontal arrays of CNTs with the same structure.  ▲ Structure of carbon nanotube (CNT).

However, since CNTs' electron… 작성자 : CMCM 2017.02.18
Prof. Ruoff Named to Thomson Reuters' List of Highly Cited Scientists
UNIST faculty named among world's most influential scientific minds by Thomson Reuters. Nov 17, 2016 / Joo Hyeon Heo / Public Relations Team / (c) UNIST Two UNIST professors have distinguished themselves with inclusion in the 2016 list of Highly Cited Researchers, a yearly distinction released by Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters. The report revealed that UNIST also recorded the most number of highly cited researchers in the field of materials science among research institutions in South Korea.​ The latest Highly Cited Researcher listing by Thomson Reuters recognizes leading researchers in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences from around the world. The new Thomson-Reuters list evaluated close to 130,000 highly cited papers in science and social sciences journals, indexed in the Web of Science Collection over an 11-year period from January 2004 to December 2014. Highly Cited Papers are defined as those that ra… 작성자 : CMCM 2016.12.22
