[Academics][Researcher of the Month] Key to Possibly a New Generation of Batteries

Phones, laptops, cars, and many other daily necessities that we use are run by batteries. Batteries are something we need and can be obtained easily in any stores, but how much do we actually know about the basic principles of batteries, and what goes on behind the doors of the labs that research and experiment these must-haves? After numerous trial and error, Professor Sun Yang-kook (Department of Energy Engineering) and Dr. Hwang Jang-yeon's (Department of Energy Engineering) paper on the “Development of P3-K0.69CrO2 as an Ultra-High-Performance Cathode Material for K-ion Batteries” marks a huge milestone in the research field of batteries. The principle of batteries (Photo courtesy of large.stanford.edu) A battery has three parts with different charges called a cathode (positive terminal) and an anode (negative terminal) on each side of the battery and an electrolyte in the middle. When either end of the battery is hooked up to an electrical circuit and the battery is turned on, the chemical reactions in the battery cause a build-up of electrons at the anode, after which, some of them flow through the electrical circuit into the cathode. Meanwhile, the ions in the anode travel across the electrolyte into the cathode. This process can be reversed, and this is how you charge and recharge your battery. The process of charging something with your battery and then recharging your battery is called a cycle. When cycles repeat, the electrochemical processes change the chemicals in both the cathode and the anode, eventually burning them out. This is why a battery has a limited lifespan. The current commercial rechargeable batteries that one can commonly see in any phones or cars are lithium-ion batteries. According to Sun, there has been a boom in sodium-ion and potassium-ion batteries as a possible substitute for lithium-ion batteries since 2010. “It’s because sodium (Na) and potassium (K) are more abundant, and, therefore, low in cost. The better accessibility and availability make them a better candidate in case lithium-ion batteries need to be replaced in the future,” said Sun. Although the mechanisms of sodium-ion and potassium-ion batteries are similar to that of lithium-ion batteries, there have been major difficulties hindering the commercialization of these batteries. Lithium (Li), sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) are in Group 1 of the periodic table. (Photo courtesy of BBC) Some of the difficulties come from sodium and potassium being highly reactive to oxygen and water. Based on the periodic table, reactivity increases as you go down the group as the size of the ions increase. That is why sodium (Na) is more reactive than lithium (Li), and potassium (K) is more reactive than sodium (Na). Principally, because there was a lack of appropriate equipment that could foster the experiments of such highly reactive materials, it was only last year that research on potassium-ion batteries was revisited. “The size of potassium-ions are very big, so it’s hard for them to slip into the cathode part of the battery that is optimized for lithium-ions as much as they can. This means that this battery will not be efficient enough and die out quicker than lithium-ion-charged batteries,” said Sun. This was the beginning of his research on potassium-ion batteries. According to computer simulations, it seemed theoretically possible to overcome such problems. However, Sun was the first to successfully realize this theory by finding the right balance of electrodes with potassium, chromium (a transition metal that makes the transition of the ions and electrons possible in a battery, also used in lithium-ion batteries), and oxygen. “In the case of lithium-ion batteries, about 100 cycles of charging and recharging was possible, whereas sodium and potassium-ion batteries could produce around 30 cycles. In order to carry out research on potassium-ion batteries, it was important not to have it exposed as it would easily react with air and water, contaminating the experiment. This is why we created a “cell” that created an optimal, no air and no water environment,” said Sun. Sun explaining the findings of the P3-K0.69CrO2 (Photo courtesy of Sun) After numerous trial and error, Sun was able to find the right balance between the amount of potassium (K) and chromium (Cr) needed to become a stable battery. P3-K0.69CrO2 shows that for a potassium-ion battery to be stable and work as a battery, there needs to be a ratio of 0.69 potassium, 1 chromium, and 2 oxygen. In the case of lithium-ion batteries, there needs to be a ratio of 1 lithium and 1 chromium to work as a full battery. “Then we put sodium in the cathode and potassium in the anode. Because sodium is smaller in size than potassium, more of the sodium can be stored into the potassium anode when charging, while the bigger potassium would help keep the battery charged. After 300 cycles of experimenting, we found the optimal balance,” said Sun. With this right balance, Sun was able to create a potassium-ion battery that is usable for 1000 cycles. Sun wishes to continue his study on potassium-ion batteries until he develops an electrode solely for potassium-ions. “Although I was able to get the number of cycles up, it is still less efficient than lithium-ion batteries. I hope that in the future potassium-ion batteries can also become commercialized, as it is a much more affordable and abundant option than lithium.” Park Joo-hyun julia1114@hanyang.ac.kr

[General]Students Promoting Traditional Activities

Among the numerous social clubs from various fields in Hanyang University, there are some with the purpose of promoting Korean traditional activities. This week, News H met three presidents of such a club: Choi Si-young (Department of Chemical Engineering, 4th year) of Shim-gung-hwe, Ahn Yong-hoon (Division of Material Science and Engineering, 2nd year) of Bun-puli, and Kim Tae-hee (Department of Organic and Nano Engineering, 1st year) and Kim Rok-hee (Department of Bio-Engineering, 2nd year) of Gum-woo-hwe. Introducing the clubs Shim-gung-hwe (Choi): I am the current president of Shim-gung-hwe, which is the social club that promotes guk-gung, the Korean traditional form of archery which focuses on shooting arrows through mental concentration. In this sense, guk-gung greatly helps practicing the mind and on concentration skills. Additionally, as guk-gung requires the use of the shoulder and back muscles, it is beneficial for posture correction. First starting as a small club of Galmuri, the social club that promotes Korean traditional martial arts, Shim-gung-hwe gained its stance as an independent social group in 2012. With around 21 active undergraduate members including 35 graduates, Shim-gung-hwe has formed a close relation between its seniors and juniors. Choi Si-young (Department of Chemical Engineering, 4th year), the president of Shim-gung-hwe, is introducing the social club and how guk-gung, the Korean form of archery, is benefical for the training of the mind and posture correction. Bun-puli (Ahn): We use the term dumok, which means leader in Korean, when referring to the president. Although Bun-puli, mainly focuses on promoting activities related to pungmul, a form of Korean traditional percussion music, it also puts a large importance on building strong relations between its members. This is because pungmul does not use musical cords, but rather focuses upon the sounds that the percussion instruments harmonize together. The more people participate the more colorful the sound becomes, which allows everyone to gather together while sharing their moments of enjoyment. Being over 30 years since its first establishment, Bun-puli is one of the three social groups that form the Patriotic Pungmul Alliance, alongside with the Hanyangdal of the College of Natural Sciences, and Gaenalnalri of the Division of Architectural Engineering. Ahn Yong-hoon (Division of Material Science and Engineering, 2nd year), the president of Bun-puli, is explaining about the Patriotic Pungmul Alliance, which consists of three social groups within Hanyang University: Bun-puli, Hanyangdal, and Gaenalnalri. Gum-woo-hwe (Kim Tae-hee and Kim Rok-hee): We are each the president and vice president of the 54th class of Gum-woo-hwe, the social group that promotes kendo (traditional Japanese martial art). Although kendo does have its origins in Japan, it is a traditional sport that has not only been enjoyed by the Japanese, but also embedded in the Korean culture for a significant amount of time. As all members have a strong passion towards the sport, we gather anytime possible throughout the week. We have both fencing and shower facilities prepared on the sixth floor of the Student Union building, which allows the members to freely practice without any concern. Kim Tae-hee (Department of Organic and Nano Engineering, 1st year) and Kim Rok-hee (Department of Bio-Engineering, 2nd year), the president and vice-president of ‘Gum-woo-hwe’ from left, are explaining how they were first attracted to the courteristic characters of kendo. Main Activities Shim-gung-hwe (Choi): We meet once a week for regular lessons which are held at the Salgoji archery field in Gunja city. Taught by a professional instructor, the members are given coaching on their shooting and posture. Being a member of the ‘Seoul Gukgung Alliance,' consisting of the social groups within the universities located in Seoul, various interactive activities are also prepared. We also participate in competitions such as the national competition hosted by the Korean Military Academy, producing successful results. As for promoting guk-gung, international exchanges with Chinese universities are in progress, alongside opening a booth every year during the school festival, which provides the experience of guk-gung towards Hanyang students. Under the coaching of Choi, News H reporters Choi Seo-yong and Kim Ga-eun are trying guk-gung. Bun-puli (Ahn): Every Monday of the week is a time for all members of Bun-puli to gather together and share their everyday lives with each other in order to build a stronger relationship. As for Thursdays, classes related to pungmul are prepared for the members. In order to learn more deeply, the members go to ‘passing down sessions,' with pungmul social groups from other schools. Regular performances are held in the form of goot, a Korean form of exorcism that promotes the good and stops the evil. The most famous are the Jip-shin-balb-gi, meaning 'stepping on the ground and preventing the evil from coming up,’ which is held in alliance with the stores in Wangsimni, and the ‘Autumn Goot,’ which promotes the goodness around the campus of Hanyang University. Bun-Puli is preparing the 'Autumn Goot' (top row) and the Jip-sin-balb-gi in order to keep away the evil and promote the good within Wangsimni and Hanyang campus. (Photo courtesy of Ahn) Gum-woo-hwe (Kim Tae-hui and Kim Rok-hee): Rather than having regular sessions, meetings are held by the possible members on a free basis. Still, members meet more than three times a week for more than two hours each meeting. Having a professional director, the members are given close lessons upon important factors such as strokes and posture. There are two competitions held by the ‘Seoul Universities Alliance’ with each held in spring and autumn. Gum-woo-hwe has shown positive results in such competitions with Kim Tae-he winning the silver medal in this year’s autumn competition. Various exchange programs are also in progress with other universities including the Korea Military Academy and Seoul National University of Science and Technology. The members of Gum-woo-hwe are competing against each other in a kendo training session with full gear on at the kendo facilities of the group. Kim is adjusting the posture of a member of Gum-woo-hwe. Additional Comments Shim-gung-hwe (Choi): With guk-gung being introduced through various forms in the media, it is gaining more interest, yet many do not know where and how to practice this particular martial art. Even if you do find an archery field, you are not allowed to shoot until you fulfill a certain period of practice. Yet, by joining Shim-gung-hwe, you are open to more chances of practicing guk-gung, alongside close training and other related activities. Bun-puli (Ahn): Most performances prepared by Bun-puli are prepared for a good purpose by driving out the evil and bringing in the good, mostly targeted towards students of Hanyang and the residents of Wangsimni. The preparations require a long time and effort and can become even more colorful if given the positive interests of the surrounding people. As they are mostly done for a good cause rather than to simply view them as something that is noisy, we hope that people can view the performances as something that is fun and share in the enjoyment. Gum-woo-hwe (Kim Tae-hui and Kim Rok-hee): Gum-woo-hwe consists of people who are all simply passionate in kendo. We do not have a strict rank of order but rather a family-like atmosphere. The age difference varies greatly, even with graduate students newly joining the club. The best part is that Gum-woo-hwe lends the gear needed in practicing kendo for free to its members with no time limits. Open at all times, we hope that those who have an interest come and join Gum-woo-hwe, which is located on the fifth floor of Hanyang Plaza. Choi Seo-yong tjdyd1@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Lee Jin-myung

[General]Department of Theater and Film’s 2018 Global Workshop

The annual Department of Theater and Film’s 2018 Global Workshop took place from December 4th to December 8th, 2018, at Hanyang University Olympic Gymnasium Black Box Theater. A total of 40 students from the department participated as actors and staff members for the workshop, “Moonstone.” First starting in 2014, the Global Workshop brings together both Korean and foreign students in the department to harmonize and enables them to grow as actors. With some students take multiple roles as both actors and staff members, this particular workshop was a significant one as it was the first time the play was produced through co-creation. Selena played by (right) Kim Yoo-lim (Department of Theater and Film, 4th year) meets her young self played by (left) Jeon Ye-ji (Department of Theater and Film, 3rd year) in her memories. The synopsis of “Moonstone” takes place on the beginning of the blue moon in Akayen. A challenger that has the courage to retrieve the moonstone in the “world beyond” becomes the leader of the moon tribe. However, those that cannot will be forever stuck in the “world beyond," never to return again. Selena, who is the only person who has inherited the lineage of the moon tribe, begins her journey to find the moonstone. (Far right) Selena, played by Kim Yoo-lim (Department of Theater and Film, 4th year), faces Bensie, played by (far left) Jeong Sol-ah (Department of English Language Education, 3rd year), who stole the moonstone. “Moonstone” was a long-term production that began on September 28th and lasted for ten weeks until its completion. As a creative play, the script for “Moonstone” constantly changed during its preparation period. In addition to the actors of the play, there were staff members who were in charge of various parts such as directing, the stage, lighting, planning, image, music, props, makeup, and costumes. The director of the play, Laure Elmour (Department of Theater and Film, 3rd year), stated that she wanted to create a play based on her interests in fairy tales. “As I had always been acting in university, I also wanted to take the opportunity to understand the directors.” A memorable experience she had during the preparation period was when she fell asleep late in the night during the stage practice while wondering how to improve the storyline. When she woke at 5 am, the actors were still up practicing. The "Taehyas" heal the injured Selena, played by (the center) Kim Yoo-lim (Department of Theater and Film, 4th year). Furthermore, the chief of the planning team and an actor who played the role of Bensie, Jeong Sol-ah (Department of English Language Education, 3rd year), is currently double majoring in the Department of Theater and Film due to her avid interest in acting. “As the director of the planning team, I was responsible for the overall performance planning, promotion, budget management, and ticket management.” While preparing for the play, it was common for the actors and staff members to pull an all-nighter. “Taking the role of both the planning team and acting was burdensome in the beginning. However, with the help of the fellow students and seniors, we were able to successfully complete the play,” maintained Jeong. The significance of the Global Workshop is that numerous international students also participated in planning “Moonstone.” In particular, Lam Tsz Yan (Department of Film and Theater, 3rd year) was one of the international students from China who participated in the play. She took the role of a mushroom that always has a bright personality. “It was difficult to produce perfect Korean accents and lines in the script, but the Korean seniors helped me with memorizing the lines, and I was able to do so easily,” said Lam. The actors of "Moonstone" from the Department of Theater and Film gather together after the performance. The cooperation of both Korean and foreign students from the Department of Theater and Film resulted in yet another successful Global Workshop. Although cultural differences were visible during the preparation period, the students’ efforts paid off and once again emphasized the true meaning of teamwork.

[General]A Competition for the "Math-Worms"

'The one who was born a genius can't win against the one who tries, and the one who tries can't win against the one who enjoys.' This particular saying went especially well with the contenders that joined the 18th Engineering Mathematics Competition on December 4th, 2018, all of whom were truly fascinated with the joy of solving Math problems. For the annual competition that has been a tradition of the College of Engineering for 18 years, many students made their presence for yet another opportunity to prove their competence. The 18th Engineering Mathematics Competition was was held at the Engineering Building Ⅱ on December 4th, 2018. The competition was held on 4th of December, 2018 at the Engineering Building Ⅱ. Any student from the College of Engineering could join, including the international students, as the competition also provides English copies. There were six short-answer questions this year, which were based on what is taught in Engineering Mathematics 1, a compulsory subject for all the second-year Engineering students. The questions were designed by the three professors who teach the course. Yoo Kwon-chang (College of Engineering), the leader of the Management Support Team, said, “engineering mathematics is the very basic of all engineering. The competition will give students an opportunity to lay the groundwork for their academic growth.” Yoo Kwon-chang (College of Engineering), the leader of the Management Support Team, expects that the competition will allow students to find out how fun math could be. The prizes for the winners are superb. The grand-prize winner receives 1,000,000 won and the gold-prize winner 500,000 won. The two silver-prize winners and three bronze-prize winners each receive 300,000 and 100,000 won. Kwon Hee-sun (Department of Mechanical Convergence Engineering, Doctoral Program), the winner of the 2015 (silver), 2016 (grand), and 2017 (grand) competitions, added, “also, the award will definitely be a huge merit when writing a self-introductory letter for employment or graduate school.” Kwon Hee-sun's (Department of Mechanical Convergence Engineering, Doctoral program) tip for preparing is to study as you would study for the final exam, and also, concentrate on solving questions as quickly as possible. Of course, the grand prize is not easily achieved. A contender for this year, Woo Je-hoon (Department of Chemical Engineering, 3rd year) said that each question was a real challenge. “I’m usually quite confident with math, but the questions were really difficult, more difficult than the final exam.” Still, all the contenders genuinely expressed their strong will to challenge themselves again soon. "If I get to go back, I am definitely going to participate again," agreed Kwon, as well as Woo, who said, "I wish there were more competitions like this, where we can join and compete without having to worry about grades. I would certainly want to join more." "Unfortunately, fewer and fewer students are joining each year," said Yoo, hoping to keep this 18-year-tradition far into the future. "Next year, celebrating the university's 80th anniversay, or the year after, celebrating the competition's 20th anniversary, we are planning on holding a wider-scale competition including students from other departments. So, hopefully see you then," smiled Yoo. Before the competition starts, a contender is studying through his notes. Lim Ji-woo il04131@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Kang Cho-hyun

[Student]Hanyang University student Khishgee Boldsukh will become a Korean national

Pictured above is Hanyang student Khishgee Boldsukh. (Photo courtesy of Kyunghyang Shinmun ) Mongolian national, Khishgee Boldsukh (Physical Education 18) is currently building his hopes of becoming a national player for the basketball club of Hanyang University. He has been in Korea for 10 years and has passed the naturalization test to acquire Korean nationality under the name, "Lee Keun-hwi" at the end of this month. He was living with his grandmother in Mongolia, but when she passed away, he legally moved to Korea with an F-3 visa in 2009. He has been interested in basketball since his childhood. After entering the school in Saehwa Elementary School in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province, that is when is initial love for basketball began on the school yard playgrounds hooping it up with friends. Afterwards, as a basketball player at Pallyong Middle School and Masan High School in Changwon, he played hard by scoring double digit points in each game. Last year, only 40 high school basketball players from Korea participated in the Korea Basketball League (KBL) Youth Elite Camp, where special training is given by outstanding coaches in Korea. However, he has also faced many hardships along the way. He could not participate on the court because he was a foreigner at the National Youth Sports Festival and the National Sports Festival because only athletes with Korean nationality can play in these competitions. Not having had physical training experience, he also had a hard time getting into a college athletic program. Also, his injuries were not covered by insurance, making it more costly to treat them. Nevertheless, Khishgee Boldsukh did not give up. To mark the Taegeuk symbol, he entered the department of physical education at Hanyang University this month through a special admission exam. Seeing the growth potential of Boldsukh, Hanyang helped him enter the university. With the height of 18cm and a weight of 87kg, he possesses quick feet and long-range shooting ability. Jung Jae-hoon, the director of the Hanyang University basketball team said, "he has range and accuracy shooting from long distances." Concluding a long journey of hoop dreams to Korean nationality, Khishgee Boldsukh stated, "I am interested in domestic basketball, and I will achieve my dream."

[Academics][Excellent R&D] Promoting the Global Competence of Domestic Businesses

The Korea Institute of Sustainable Economy (KISE) is one of the 18 surviving teams of the Social Science Korea (SSK) business, supervised by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). Being evaluated on mainly three stages, KISE has managed to surpass the former two evaluation processes by currently focusing its research upon enhancing the global competence of domestic businesses, especially from the viewpoint of distribution systems. The Social Science Korea (SSK) business refers to a research program funded by the NRF, which was first started in 2010 with the purpose of promoting research institutions that conduct research activities in the field of humanities and social science on an international basis. Whereas most research programs of the social science field are funded on a two to three year period, the SSK is a more long-term one which was targeted with ten years of research, developing into three stages: small, medium, and large-sized projects. Only the teams that pass the evaluations of the NRF upon their progress on the former stages are able to move on to the projects of the later phases. With an initial 90 teams being selected out of the 500 that applied for the small-sized studies, only 45 were able to move on to the medium-sized projects. Once again, the number was halved to 20 when advancing on to the final stage, with the current surviving teams counting up to only 18. KISE In this sense, KISE has made great progress on not only the former two phases of research, but also its current large-sized project. Professor Kim Bo-young (School of Business), the director of KISE, explained the progress that KISE has gone through the past eight years of research since 2010. Professor Kim Bo-young (School of Business), the director of the Korea Institute of Sustainable Economy (KISE), is explaining the research progress that KISE has gone through since 2010. Small-sized project When first starting the SSK project, KISE first focused upon an agenda that had both a social impact and practical implications. With a large emphasis being put on the Free Trade Agreements (FTA), especially upon the food industry at the time, KISE targeted their research towards the sustainable growth of ‘Food Security,’ ‘Food Safety,’ and ‘Global Branding Strategies.’ While giving a main focus upon China, as a major trade partner, KISE studied and compared the food safety management system of the two countries. Also giving light to the distributional process of the food industry, KISE conducted research on the strategies of marketing and positioning that the domestic businesses should implement when exporting food. KISE studied the actual products of Korea and China, and the strategies that would help them gain competence in the global market and maintain a global brand image. With the studies mainly focused upon China, during this stage, Kim and her team formed a global network with Chinese research institutions, while holding various symposiums on the subject. Medium-sized project Moving on to the medium-sized project in 2013, KISE targeted their focus more to the open global market in order to meet the goals of sustainable development. During this stage, KISE also collaborated with the Climate Change Center of Konkuk University, in order to study the steady supply and growth of food during extreme weather conditions. The studies also became more diversified with focusing on mainly four points within the global market. With health products gaining more popularity in the global markets and the industry also fiercely enhancing, KISE studied how Korean health products, such as ‘Ginseng,’ should promote themselves within this particular market. Unlike the small-sized stage, the comparatives were extended from China to other countries including the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The international consuming patterns and how Korean industries should position themselves within such global trends was also a main study of this stage. Risk communication models were also researched and compared on a global basis. With various countries all having their own model, the advantages and disadvantages of each model were given a thorough research. Cooperation with the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MOFD) was made in order to find the ideal model of handling food-related crisis. The last of the four main points, the actual infrastructure of the distribution process, was not put upon full focus during the medium phase, but was given more light in the later large-sized project. Large-sized project (Current) When entering the large-sized phase in 2016, the distribution system went through a great change under the fourth industrial revolution. For this reason, the infrastructure of the distribution process, from the former stage, became the main research in this large phase. With offline and online channels becoming united, the distribution system is going through an innovative process in which the consuming patterns are also greatly changing. Being in an early stage of adaption of such systems, KISE targeted its research towards how both consumers and industries would react to this major change. Kim is explaining how the use of big-data will be an important aspect in the new distributional system of the fourth industrial revolution. How this innovative change is being accepted in other comparative countries was a start of this particular research. Collaborating with the Japanese company ‘MUJI’ and having access to their big data on consumption patterns, KISE is further targeting their research beyond the food industry into other various consumer goods and how the domestic industries should position themselves in this rapidly changing system. With the access of big data allowing KISE to extend and deepen their research, there are still some remaining goals of the institution. According to Kim, studying the practical implications that the innovative distribution system has upon market competence, the rapidly changing consumer patterns, and the global strategies that domestic businesses should implement within this new system to maintain their global competence and brand image are the main remaining tasks that KISE should conclude during this large stage. With around two years left for the SSK project, Kim asserted that this does not designate an end to the current research that KISE is conducting. Although the SSK project did indicate a start for KISE, it does not necessarily correspond to an end. Kim also added that there will be further tasks and research that she and KISE should conduct in helping promote the global competence of domestic businesses, especially in the forms of sustainable growth.
