Distinguished Professor Kyungjae Myung's research team discovers an unexpected function of SHPRH.
Research Sheds Light on Mechanisms Underlying Aging
DNA repair proteins, in addition to their roles in DNA damage response and repair, have been found to contribute to the reduction of protein production by restricting the ribosomal DNA (rRNA) transcription. This discovery could lead to the... Read More
UNIST researchers introduce new battery charging technology that uses light to charge batteries.
A team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has developed a single-unit, photo-rechargeable portable power source based on high-efficiency silicon solar cells and lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). This newly-developed power source is designed... Read More
The work by Professor Jang-Ung Park has been published in the recent issue of Nature Communications.
His research team developed a transistor-type active-matrix pressure sensor using foldable substrate and air-dielectric layer.
A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has created a three-dimensional, tactile sensor that could detect wide pressure ranges from human body weight to a finger touch. This new sensor with transparent features is capable of generating an ele... Read More
The work by Distinguished Professor Sang-Il Seok has been published in the March issue of the prestigious journal Science.
The study finds key to produce perovskite solar cells that display both high efficiency (21.2%) and long-term stability (1,000 hours of light exposure).
A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has presented a new cost-efficient way to produce inorganic-organic hybrid perovskite solar cells (PSCs) which sets a new world-record efficiency performance, in particular photostability. The research... Read More
The work by Distinguished Professor Rodney S. Ruoff has been published in the March issue of JACS.
The study discloses a new platform to attach chemical groups on graphene lying on a silica/silicon substrate.
A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has revealed a new method to add chemical groups on (that is, to “functionalize”) single layer (SLG) and bilayer (BLG) graphene lying on silica/silicon. Their findings, published online in the March iss... Read More
