  • KAIST News: 빛을 이용한 실리카 구조체 가공 기술 개발 (Oct. 6, 2015)

  • Our article on the Co nanoparticle-embedded carbon nanofiber for Li oxygen battery was selected as a Wiley-VCH Hot Topic. (Link: http://www.wiley-vch.de/util/hottopics/batteries/)

  • Our article on the Co nanoparticle-embedded carbon nanofiber for Li oxygen battery was selected as a front cover of ChemSusChem (July. 31, 2015)

    Invited for this month’s cover. (the group of Jung-Ki Park and Hee-Tak Kim at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) The image shows cobalt nanoparticles embedded in carbon nanofibers for use in lithium oxygen (Li–O2) battery: the fibers attract oxygen molecules and lithium ions due to a charge transfer from cobalt nanoparticles to carbon, inducing the formation of amorphous lithium peroxide.

  • KAIST News: 레고블록 계면구조 수소연료전지 개발 (May. 27, 2015)

  • Our article on the interlocking interface structure of PEMFC was selected as a back cover of Advanced Materials (May. 20, 2015)
    A new solution for enhancing interfacial adhesion between the hydrocarbon (HC) membrane and a perfluorinated catalyst layer (CL) in polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEMFCs) is successfully demonstrated by J.-K. Park, H.-T. Kim, and co-workers on page 2974. This is realized by the intrusion of micrometer-sized pillars fabricated on the HC membrane into the perfluorinated CL, forming an interlocking interface, like Lego blocks. Owing to a higher expansion with hydration for the HC membrane than for the perfluorinated CL, a strong normal force occurs at the interface of the pillars and the holes, resulting in an eight-fold increase of the interfacial bonding strength.



  • The Electrochemical Energy Device (EED) Lab started in July, 2013.
    There are opportunities for graduate students, and undergraduate students with interest in battery, capacitor, and fuel cell (from material to device) in our group. Please contact us. (Prof. Hee-tak Kim, heetak.kim@kaist.ac.kr)
