In this talk, I will introduce my research activities on nanomechanical sensors and sensing systems for physical and chemical sensing applications. Multi-modal nanomechanical physical/chemical sensors will be presented first then move on nanomaterial synthesis, especially metal-organic frameworks and their composites, on top of nanomechanical devices. Novel nanoscale imaging techniques and their working mechanisms (Ultrasonic atomic force microscopy, Scanning thermal microscopy, Nano IR spectroscopy) with a scanning probe microscope will be briefly discussed at the end.
Dr. Kim is an Assocaite Professor and Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Nano Sensing Systems, in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Calgary. He received his BS (1998) and MS (2000) degrees in Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea and PhD (2008) in Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA and an Acting Research Associate at the University of Alberta, Canada prior to his current position. Dr. Kim has founded the Nano/Micro-Sensors and Sensing Systems Laboratory (NMSSS, www.ucalgary.ca/sskim) at the University of Calgary in 2013 to develop ultrasensitive physical/chemical sensors and sensing systems and novel nano-metrologies to characterize nanomaterials and polymeric nanocomposites for energy and environment applications.
