Below is some research conducted in KAIST for the past few years

  • 03
  • Crystal Structure of Lipopolysaccharide Binding Protein
  • Crystal Structure of Lipopolysaccharide Binding Protein

    Crystallographic study of the extracellular domains of TLRs in complex with their ligands has been an attractive area of research. In 2005, Choe et al., and later Bell et al., independently reported the first crystal structures

  • 05
  • Supercritical CO2 cooled Micro Modular Reactor
  • Supercritical CO2 cooled Micro Modular Reactor

    In the near future, micro modular nuclear reactors will be developed and will supply electrical needs in various regions. Micro modular reactors have better safety and are easier in maintenance compared to conventional large reactors, which leads to lower probability of severe accidents.

  • 06
  • Development of Dual fuel cell to capture and collect pure NOx from flue gases
  • Development of Dual fuel cell to capture and collect pure NOx from flue gases

    The ultimate goal of this research is to commercialize the two types of prototypes ??uel cell and electrolysis-, able to selectively capture NOx from the exhaust gas emitted from the power plants and petroleum refineries, through its optimization on the facilities' conditions of exhaust rate, concentration, and process speed.

  • 07
  • Self-powered cardiac pacemaker enabled by flexible single crystalline PMN-PT
  • Self-powered cardiac pacemaker enabled by flexible single crystalline PMN-PT

    Flexible piezoelectric harvester reported in this research, could be utilized to charge batteries or directly stimulate living heart by generating electric energy from tiny movement of human organs. Consequently, medical accidents and medical cost could be decreased, and economic development could be made by opened new market.

  • 09
  • Wearable Thermoelectric Device
  • Wearable Thermoelectric Device

    The era of IOT(Internet of Things) is just around the corner. When this era arrives, the most crucial technology will be sensors. Each person will have many sensors attached to their body,
