MINT

Welcome to the website of Micro and Nano Transducers Lab (MINT) Group (Principal Investigator: Professor Inkyu Park) at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)!

The main goal of our research group is to develop functional MEMS/NANO-devices, nanosystems for environment & biological monitoring, flexible physical & chemical sensors, and new energy conversion systems. Our research topics are:

  • MEMS/Nano hybrid systems for advanced engineering applications
  • High performance bio/chemical & physical sensors based on functional nanostructures
  • Micro/nanomanufacturing processes and systems
  • Mechanics and reliability of micro/nanoscale structures and systems
