Visualizing polymers moving inside tiny graphene pockets
Moving, vibrating and leaping molecules make up our world. However, capturing their movement is not an easy task. IBS scientists at the Center for Soft and Living Matter, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), were able to see the movement of molecules stored inside a graphene pocket ...
The target of large, cheap and quick graphene synthesis achieved: 5 x 50 cm2 and beyond
Boasting the conductivity, strength and flexibility we wished for, graphene was proposed as one of the most likely substitutes for silicon and other materials. Its launch into the market however is still slow. What is curbing graphene from industrial applications? One factor is that top quality ...
Cracks sank the 'unsinkable' Titanic; decrease the performance of touchscreens and erode teeth. We are familiar with cracks in big or small three-dimensional (3D) objects, but how do thin two-dimensional (2D) materials crack? 2D materials, like molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), have emerged as an ...
PARK Je-Geun, Associate Director at the Center for Correlated Electron Systems, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), working in collaboration with CHEONG Hyeonsik at Sogang University and PARK Cheol-Hwan at Seoul National University demonstrated the magnetic behavior of a special class ...
Research team create carbon synthesis using zeolites as a template
Graphene, an allotrope of carbon, discovered more than a decade ago has led to myriad research that seeks to unlock its vast potential. Zeolites, commonly used microporous solid catalysts in the petrochemical industry, have recently attracted attention in the field of material science as a ...
The Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics (CINAP) within IBS has reported results correlating the flake merging angle with grain boundary (GBs) properties, and proven that increasing the merging angle of GBs drastically improves the flow of electrons. This correlates to an increase in the ...
A Korean team of scientists tune Black Phosphorous' band gap to form a superior conductor, allowing for the application to be mass produced for electronic and optoelectronics devices The research team operating out of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), affiliated with the ...
It grasps both performance efficiency and removal of toxic heavy metal ions in direct methanol fuel cells
The Center for Nanoparticle Research at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) has succeeded in proposing a new method to enhance fuel cell efficiency with the simultaneous removal of toxic heavy metal ions.The direct methanol fuel cell (DFMC) has been a promising energy conversion device for ...
