Nano Materials and Devices Lab

"Building Next Generation Micro and Nano Systems"


Nano Materials and Devices (NanoMaD) Lab in Department of Robotics Engineering at DGIST works on thermal science, multi-functional materials, and micro/nano systems. In particular, our research group focuses on developing advanced manufacturing processes for emerging nanomaterials and functional materials for device, energy, and robotic applications.

Key thrust areas include:

1. Utilization of Nanoscale Thermal Energy for Manufacturing and Materials Characterization

2. Batch Fabrication of Nanomaterials and Functional Materials Integrated Devices

3. Development of Multi-physical Smart Sensor Devices for Robotic Systems
