Nanobio Medical/Chemical Sensor Development; Graphene Device Application
Keywords: Nanowire, Graphene, CVD biomarkers
Minhee Yun joined the faculty as an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering after four years as a senior staff in the device application group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, CA. While at JPL, he led research efforts in the area of device fabrication based on MEMS technologies, and chemical and biochemical nanowire sensor arrays for life detection on Mars and bio-signature detection of emerging diseases. His current research interests include the development of nano-electronic devices, and bio-medical devices for early detection of disease signatures using nano-structured materials including conducting polymer, metal nanowires, carbon nanotubes (CNT) and graphene which are defined as smaller than 100 nm in either 1-D or 2-D size. Nanostructured materials such as nanowire (NW), carbon nanotube (CNT), and graphene offer much promise for advances in bio-medicine and solid state device area due to possible enhanced sensitivity/selectivity and quantum confinement.
