Many techniques are being developed to facilitate the diagnosis of an individual's illness using a portable point of care testing machine. A system has been developed to operate a single photon-capable SiPM (Silicon Photomultiplier) by amplifying low-intensity light by 1 million times through internal amplification. Using this technology it will be possible to easily diagnose diseases and illnesses such as diabetes, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, and infection from urine samples at an early stage.
Through years of collaboration with NAVER LABS, Prof. Ayoung Kim’s team introduced their dataset toward 3D urban mapping for the robotics community. The dataset paper was also accepted and will be presented in May at a major robotics conference, International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
Professor Doh Chang Lee’s team unveiled the growth mechanism of colloidal semiconductor nanorods (NRs). Atomic-precision control of NR morphologies and structures achieved in the teams’ work is expected to make a shattering impact on a wide range of nanomaterials, particularly in display applications.
A novel method can improve T1 MR image compatibility across different centers to study Alzheimer's disease
Well-defined colloidal zinc oxide-copper(I) oxide hybrid nanocatalysts behaved as photocatalysts for the direct conversion of carbon dioxide to methane in an aqueous medium under ambient pressure and room temperature. The activity was 1080 mmolgcat-1h-1 with a quantum yield of 1.5%, which were two magnitudes superior to any other catalysts under aqueous environments. Moreover, the selectivity to methane approached 100%, meaning that carbon dioxide could be exclusively converted into pure fuels by sunlight.
New simulation techniques based on big data obtained from molecular simulations can indirectly help model degraded porous materials. As such, the new method can be used to understand properties of materials in the absence of structural information.
A new class of photonic nanomaterial with biodegradability and biocompatibility is developed for combined photoacoustic imaging and photothermal therapy of cancers.
KAIST researchers established a novel and efficient biocatalysis system to produce terephthalic acid from p-xylene by microbial fermentation of an engineered gut bacterium.
