Materials Processing Laboratory (MPL) has been working on the modeling and simulation of chemical processes, electrochemical systems, and microelectronics processing. The main research topic of MPL is currently the performance modeling of batteries. Over the last 20 years, a broad range of batteries have been examined at MPL. The recent focus is on the lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) for hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle applications. Research to overcome the limitations of LIB related to safety, limited life, and poor performance at low temperature based on modeling is being conducted at MPL.

Our research mainly focuses on etching and deposition of various thin films for the fabrication of microelectronics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices, nanotechnology, surface modification of materials, and so on. Plasma processing and electrochemical methods are used to elucidate fundamental phenomena and mechanisms during etching and deposition of thin films. The current research topics are as follows.

  • - Electrodeposition of 3-dimensional nanostructured electrodes for supercapacitors
  • - Environment-friendly deep Si etching for MEMS devices
  • - Plasma processing for direct patterning of 3-dimensional nanostructures

Laboratory database (Dynamics of Complex Fluids and Microfluidics Laboratory) Professor: Ju Min Kim

Laboratory : Chemical Engineering Experiment Building 208
Laboratory phone : 031-219-2398 website :

Our research focuses on the dynamics of single particles, cells and biopolymers in microfluidic environments, microrheology and the development of lab-on-a-chips applicable to point-of-care testing, personalized medicine and environmental technologies. We harness theoretical, numerical and experimental approaches to study the fundamentals in complex fluids, polymer physics and transport phenomena in microfluidics. We also facilitate such tools to engineer microchips to focus and separate particles, cells and single DNA molecules.
