Professor Jung Jin-wook’s (Division of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering) "1 nm damage-free atomic layer etching source technology using electrons" (Disruptive semiconductor structure and realization technology) has been selected as the 2020 Samsung Science & Technology Foundation’s specified support research subject.
Samsung Electronics has been supporting and developing future science technology through the contribution of 1.5 trillion won over the last 8 years as a part of the Samsung Science & Technology Foundation. The foundation selects subjects in the ICT field of basic science to support in the first and second half of each year for national research in the field of future technology through the annual Designated Theme Task Contest. This year, 12.35 billion won will be provided to 12 research subjects across six fields.
The six themes selected this time were ▲Disruptive semiconductor structure and realization technology ▲Next generation spontaneous emission displays ▲Cell therapy products for curing incurable diseases ▲Source technology for the practical use of quantum computing ▲Next generation realistic media devices and processing technology ▲B5G & 6G Communication.
Professor Jung is a renowned authority in the field of etching technology, which is necessary for next generation semiconductor development. Professor Jung plans to develop etching technology using electrons that do not damage the semiconductor board and clips off a semiconductor wafer to 1 nm. His goal is to create technology that enables etching large-scale electrons without silicon board damage. It is expected to enhance semiconductor efficiency, which is currently maxed out, by 1,000~10,000 times when this technology becomes commercialized.
Samsung Electronics has invested a total of 771.3 billion won through the Samsung Science & Technology Foundation across 601 fields including 201 fields in basic science, 199 fields in the materials sector, and 201 fields in ICT. There have been 1,241 supported research papers published in international journals. In particular, there have been 93 papers introduced in world-class international journals such as Science (5 papers), and Nature (2 papers).
