Professor Tae Whan Kim is a distinguished scholar of next generation intelligent semiconductor research. For more than 30 years, he has focused on the properties of semiconductor nano quantum structures, materials, and devices. He became a member of the Korean Academy of Science and Technology in 2006 and became an HYU Distinguished Professor in 2007. He has more than 700 papers published in the SCI journals and more than 168 international and Korean patents. In particular, there were more than 75 technology transfers to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., LG Display Co. Ltd., and an IP investment company called Intellectual Discovery, all leading companies in memory and display industry. Professor Kim, who describes himself as a ‘researcher who observes and applies natural phenomenon,’ is committed to research with the hope that his passion as a scholar will help enrich our lives.
Professor Kim is in charge of the Nano Quantum Electronics Research Lab at Hanyang University. The research lab studies memory devices, organic light-emitting devices, energy harvesting devices, and nano quantum structure device simulation. They also perform national and industry-university tasks including the Korean Research Foundation’ leap task. Professor Kim is conducting next-generation intelligent semiconductor research in collaboration with research teams to realize hardware artificial intelligence utilizing memristive devices including a memristor and a synaptic device. Professor Kim states, “Just as a human gets nourished and produces energy, learns, judges, and acts on their own, I would like to make a semiconductor device into a network that can continue to replenish its energy and learn by itself.”
Professor Kim’s research has been cited by many fellow researchers. His studies on memristive devices for implementing next-generation hardware artificial intelligence, improving performance of organic light-emitting devices, and energy harvesting have become a guide for contemporary researchers and juniors. “I would like to make a better hardware device by imitating the way the human brain works, which is the most biologically advanced mechanism,” said Professor Kim. He is working on another design based on his prior researches. He plans to secure the original technologies for 1) bio-mimetic memristor and synaptic devices for the next-generation intelligent semiconductors, 2) the neuro-network operation principle based on research on a brain-mimetic device with the synaptic characteristics of the memristive devices, and 3) development and improvement to commercialize flexible and wearable light-emitting devices and energy harvesting devices.
Professor Kim, with the help of his co-researchers, wishes to solve the problems of intelligent semiconductor devices, including the memristor to realize hardware artificial intelligence, synaptic devices, and flexible and wearable energy harvest devices combined with a learning sensor. “The goal is to secure original technologies related to the realization of bio-mimetic neuromorphic intelligent semiconductor devices, energy harvest devices, and the self-developing bio-mimetic convergence system, which are necessary for the realization of the brain nerve network,” states Professor Kim. He humbly wishes to share his knowledge with modesty and to devote his research in pursuit of enriching our lives, which is the driving force of his research. As his brain neuro-network research intensifies, we wish he can realize his bio-mimetic technology that can cure brain diseases, an important topic for the aging society.
