Jung-Kun Lee

Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, University of Pittsburgh
Ph.D., Materials Science and Engineering, Seoul National University, Korea, 2000

Jung-Kun Lee’s current research interests include energy and/or electro-optical applications of nano-structured materials. Specific emphasis is placed on

1.) photovoltaic application of wide band-gap nano-particles,

2.) material processing of electronic materials in forms of nano-particles, bulk ceramics/crystals, and thin films,

3.) optical and magnetic properties of nano-particles, and

4.) the surface modification using ion implantation and chemical methods.

Before joining the University of Pittsburgh, he also carried out the research on domain/strain engineering of ferroic materials and composite design of biomaterials.
