Producing Defectless Metal Crystals of Unprecedented Size
Producing Defectless Metal Crystal of Unprecedented Size - IBS scientists report in Science a new method to obtain large single crystals up to 32 ㎠, made of copper, nickel, cobalt, platinum, or palladium -​ A research group at the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), have published in Science about a new method to convert inexpensive polycrystalline metal foils to single crystals with superior properties. It is expected that these materials will find many uses in science and technology. ​The structure of most metal materials can be thought of as a patchwork of different tiny crystals, bearing some defects on the borders between each patch. These defects, known as grain boundaries (GBs), worsen the electrical and sometimes mechanical properties of the metal. Single crystal metals, instead, have no GBs and show higher electrical conductivity and other enhanced qualities that can play a major role in multiple fields, such as e… 작성자 : CMCM 2018.10.22

Carbon Gives You Ten Questions If You Find One Answer
Carbon gives you ten questions if you find one answer [UNIST MAGAZINE] Prof. Feng Ding, an expert on carbon nanomaterials with computer simulation research Prof. Feng Ding (School of Materials Science Engineering) has been living in Korea for two years, but his calm attitude during the interview made him look like he has been living here for a long time. He might be indifferent to his environmental changes or he may not have time to think about the things around him. Prof. Feng Ding explained how he came to Korea.  "Well, somehow I came to South Korea by chance. Anyway, I am satisfied with my life now." Prof. Feng Ding’s life may be the result of coincidences. He only focused on his research and people around him kept giving him opportunities to work at different places. His current position in UNIST was also one of those job opportunities. It shows that he cares about maintaining good relationships with his colleagues as much as he cares about his research.​Prof. Feng Din… 작성자 : CMCM 2018.10.11
New Study Finds Folding Graphene Significantly Enhances Mechanical Performance
New Study Finds Folding Graphene Significantly Enhances Mechanical Performance​ Distinguished Professor Rodney S. Ruoff’s team succeeded in folding an A5-sized, 400nm polycarbonate film in half 12 times. Their work has been published in the prestigious journal, Advances Materials.   A piece of paper folded over many times able to carry more weight than a flat sheet of paper of the same length. Similarly, folding can also enhance the mechanical properties of graphene.​ An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has discovered that folding is an efficient strategy to incorporate large-area monolayer graphene films on polymer composites and that doing so improves mechanical reinforcement.​ This breakthrough has been led by Distinguished Professor Rodney S. Ruoff and his research group from the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at UNIST. Professor Nicola Pugno from University of Trento in Italy,… 작성자 : CMCM 2018.10.11
