Development of two-dimensional nanopore DNA sequencing devices
Design of next generation dehumidifiers using desiccant materials
In comparison with their bulk values, molecules possess unique transport properties in confined nanospace, allowing for the possibility of future technologies and applications. In this regard, we study transport phenomena of water, ions and biomolecules at the nanoscale driven by different types of chemical potential to explore unidentified physical phenomena via both theoretical and experimental approaches. Built upon acquired knowledge from our fundamental research, we propose prototypes of next generation systems for energy-related and medical purposes. Currently, we are working on the developments of desiccant-based dehumidifiers for air-conditioning applications and solid-state nanopore DNA sequencing devices using two-dimensional materials for precision medicine technology.
