About this Event

Nanotechnology and Nanofabrication for Biological Applications

Overview of Presentation:

Principle and examples of key nanofabrication techniques, tool capabilities at the Singh center for nanotechnology at Penn will be presented. Then, microfluidic devices and their concepts and process flow will be introduced to understand the nanofabrication for biological applications.

See below for Information on our speaker and an abstract of her presentation.

Gyuseok L. Kim

Dr. Gyuseok L. Kim is a principal scientist at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania. He manages the graduate student fellow program that provides masters students with hands-on processing nanofabrication experience. He also runs educational programs such as Engineering Summer Academy at Penn - Nanofabrication course for high school students. Prior to joining Singh Center, he worked at Samsung Electro-Mechanics as a senior engineer, developed the touch screen panel and characterized devices and materials with electron microscopy. He also worked at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht in Germany as a research assistant. He received the Ph.D. from Grenoble INP in France, BS and MS both in Material Science and Engineering from Seoul National University in South Korea.


Nanotechnology and Nanofabrication for Biological Applications

Abstract: Nanotechnologies exist around us. Cell phone, tablet, computer, watch and even in Oculus games. Due to the ever increasing need for smaller and faster devices, nanotechnology has been the subject of intense research and commercial activities. The traditional area of nanotechnology includes semiconductors and microelectromechanical system (MEMS) such as diode, transistor, solar cell, quantum dots, actuator and sensor. And most of the nanofabrication process requires lithography, deposition and etch techniques. Recently, non-traditional use of nanotechnology is emerging, especially in biology area. Gradient generator, droplet generator and cell culture device are examples of biological application. In this talk, I will present principle and examples of key nanofabrication techniques, and associated tool capabilities that Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania provides. Then, I will introduce concepts and process flows of actual microfluidic devices to understand the nanofabrication for biological applications.
