- 2019.1014[Excellent R&D] Technique to Improve Display Technology
In the modern world, people look, read, communicate, and even travel through the few-inch square screen. Thus, developing a better display technique has always been an aspired aim. Professor Kim Jaekyun's (Department of Photonics and Nanoelectronics) recent proposition for a better display technology with a ‘Programmable Non-Contact Assembly-based 5000ppi Micro LED Display’ suggests a new and better technology for the future of displays. Kim Jaekyun (Department of Photonics and Nanoelectronics), in his recent study proposition, suggested a better Micro LED transfer technology for the future of displays. Micro LED is an emerging display technology, consisting of an array of microscopic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) forming the individual color pixels. This particular LED is quickly becoming the “next big thing” for it outperforms, in many ways, the organic light-emitting diode (OLED), which is the current and dominant display technique used in most devices. Most importantly, Micro LED has much better energy efficiency. With the same amount of electricity, Micro LED emits light 1000 times brighter than OLED. This indicates that smaller, lesser, and more distantly arranged Micro LEDs will create the same smooth screen as the previous OLED. However, there is one big problem to solve before commercialization. For Micro LED, the Red-Green-Blue color pixels are manufactured separately, then directly transferred onto the display backplane. However, the current transfer technology, where each pixel is transferred one by one, is highly time-consuming and expensive. The result is an expensive product unfit for commercializing, such as Samsung’s new model of television, the Wall Professional, which costs up to 300 million won.

Although the LEDs are arranged quite distantly in close view, the brighter light of Micro LED creates the illusion of a smooth surface from afar. (Photo courtesy of Kim) Kim proposed a technique that arranges the color pixels without any direct contact. First, the Micro LEDs dispersed in a solution will be spread on the backplane. As a result of the electric field from the sophisticatedly-designed backplane, the micro LEDs will automatically be arranged into correct position. The micro LED display made by this technique will be much cheaper, allowing a wide commercialization of the micro LED. Kim expects the technique to be implemented on all devices, including smartphones and TVs. He primarily expects its positive impact on the performance of AR glasses, which requires a small but bright display light as Micro LED. “The research will be difficult, but I have conviction that it will work,” said Kim. “When researching, one has to think less of ‘will it work?’ and more of ‘I need to make it work’; because in the end, somebody will. For the next three years, I’ll keep these words in mind and work my hardest to succeed in developing the new Micro LED technology.” Lim Ji-woo email@example.com Photos by Lee Hyeon-seon
- 2019.1013An Alumnus of 30 Years Ago and a Freshman Meet for a Campus Tour
30 years ago, Kim You-shin (Department of Education, ’97) entered Hanyang University with excitement. “Being on this university campus was like a dream for me,” said Kim. “Since then, Hanyang has become a representation of my youth.” Today, 30 years after Kim's entrance into Hanyang, a freshman named Kim Seong-jun (Department of Business Administration, 1st Year) accompanied his 30 year senior on his campus tour. While Kim You-shin recollected his old memories, Kim Seong-jun made new memories on their tour together. (From left) Kim You-shin (Department of Education, ’97) and Kim Seong-jun (Department of Business Administration, 1st Year) are posing together. The Lion Statue is considered one of the best landmarks of Hanyang among students, faculty, and alumni. Where the two men first met was in front of the Lion Statue. It stands between the two Administration Buildings. “As the Lion Statue is one of the best landmarks of Hanyang, many seniors would do a traditional wedding ceremony in front of the statue,” said Kim You-shin. The alumnus continued with a myth surrounding the statue, saying that its teeth were widely known as the charm of passing the bar exam. Kim Seong-jun seemed to be astonished to hear about the myth as they headed towards the Amphitheater. The Amphitheater is considered as the symbol of Hanyang by many alumni. “It was an unforgettable experience to speak in front of a large audience,” said Kim You-shin, looking back on his public speech at a rally. “The Amphitheater is the symbol of Hanyang. Various events were held in the Amphitheater, and it will do so in the future.” The two men took a photo inside Hanyang’s major landmark and walked towards the HIT building. The Hanyang Institute of Technology (HIT) Building replaced the sports field and became the hub of Industry-University Cooperation. There used to be a sports field where the Hanyang Institute of Technology (HIT) Building now stands. In the old days, admissions were announced on the bulletin board on the sports field. “The sports field is where I heard my acceptance news,” said Kim You-shin, reminiscing back on the excitement. “It also used to be my workplace, as I started my job at the Industry-University Cooperation in 1997.” An old auditorium was rebuilt into a cutting-edge library as it serves as a major source of talent. On top of the hill stood Paiknam Academic Information Center and Library. The central library of Hanyang was built in 1998. “It used to be an auditorium back in the 80s,” Kim You-shin recalled. “The central library was then located nearby the main entrance, which is now the College of Medicine Building.” He did not have many memories of this library but was glad to hear that students could study in such a state-of-the-art facility. 30 years have passed and things have changed. However, the headstone remains the same. (Photo courtesy of Kim You-Shin) Kim You-shin could not keep his eyes off the College of Education Building. The former president of the college spent much of his school life at the building. Kim You-shin showed Kim Seong-jun an old photo that he took in front of the headstone. “The stone was set up to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Hanyang University, which is the same year when I started school,” said Kim You-shin who told anecdotes on his college life as they moved on to Hanmadang and the Student Union Building. With different emotions in mind, Hanmadang was the nostalgic site for Kim You-shin. Kim You-shin, who is currently the chairman of the 30th Anniversary Homecoming Day Preparation Committee, seemed to be immersed in his memories. “Hanmadang is the most memorable place for me as it presented joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure,” said the alumnus. “The mass movement for democracy started here. It is also where I had this rare opportunity to see Kim Kwang-seok (a South Korean folk-rock singer) singing.” During the campus tour, Kim You-shin was overwhelmed to see the changes. “Hanyang has changed a lot,”he said. “Along with the new buildings, the campus has changed into a place where you can feel the richness of daily life.” Kim Seong-jun stated that he did not know much about Hanyang before the tour. “It has only been two months since I started school,” said the freshman. “I learned a lot as a member of the Hanyang community.” (From left) The reporter Oh Kyu-jin, Kim You-shin, and Kim Seong-jun are walking down the stairs next to the College of Humanities. As some people say, time changes everything except something within us, which is always surprised by that change. How is Hanyang remembered in your memories?

- 2019.1010Where the Young Men Go
As a college student studying in Korea, one would start noticing a frightening disappearance of male classmates when they become sophomores and juniors. In the name of protecting the country, young men are stripped of their civilian clothes and put into uniform. October 1st is Armed Forces Day in Korea, a day to pay tribute to those in the armed forces. In South Korea, more than 230,000 young men from 18 to 28 join the military each year. Newly enlisted recruits are sworn in during an enlistment ceremony as soldiers of the Republic of Korea Army. (Photo courtesy of MBC) Males in Korean are obligated to protect their country according the Korean Constitution, which is why South Korean male citizens who are suitable for military service must serve a compulsory term, also known as conscription. One may choose to serve 18 months in the Army, Marine Corps, or Auxiliary Police, 20 months in the Navy, or 22 months in the Air Force (the Korean military is currently shortening the service period from the original surplus of three months, which will be completely applied after 2020). Those whose physical and psychological condition is not so healthy for active training serve in supplementary services for 21 months as social work personnel in places run by the government, such as local community centers, public schools, and public facilities. Military calls When a Korean male citizen turns 18 years old, he gets his first draft letter from the military. Usually between the age of 19 and 20, one is required to undergo physical examination to determine whether one is suitable for military service. Once they are deemed eligible, one can choose from which armed forces they would like to serve in and can either enlist to be designated randomly for open spots or apply for specific jobs within the military based on one’s credentials. Training camp One joins the military by first entering a training center. A similar training period is shared by all armed forces, but the following content relates to the Repuplic of Korea Army. For those living near Hanyang University or Seoul who enlist in the army, one would most likely go to the one in Nonsan, Chungcheongnam-do Province. On the day of their enlistment, one would say their last goodbyes to their families before being herded off with new recruits. They spend five weeks in the training camp, and during this period, cell phone use is prohibited. The next two days are filled with medical checkups and vaccination. Recruits are also supplied with gear and clothes that they will be using throughout their service. When all is done and given, the real training starts. Trainees participate in combat drills. (Photo courtesy of MBC) Trainees are soon given a rifle that they will learn to shoot, dismantle, clean and reassemble. They learn to uphold strict military standards, nothing done without permission and to live by a top-down command. Training includes individual combat, grenade throwing, experiencing tear gas, first-aid, surveillance, close-order drills (formal movements and formations used in military marching), and a final 20-kilometer march in full gear amounting to 44 pounds. Daily activities start at 6:30am, and soldiers are allowed to sleep at 10pm. Weekends are spent laundering clothes, cleaning the base, and preparing for the following week with some time to write letters and read books. On Sundays, soldiers can participate in religious activities at the churches and temples within the base. Soldiers are getting on a bus that will drop them off at their next destination, whether it is for additional training or the base where they will spend the rest of their service. (Photo courtesy of GoyangTV) After basic military training is finished, soldiers spend an afternoon with their families. This is when they are notified where they will be dispatched. Most people prefer being close to home, and most dread being sent to the front lines of Gangwon. Some soldiers who will become mechanics, drivers, and communications personnel will usually receive additional training for their job. The next day, soldiers are herded into trains and buses to their next stop. Military life For those who go to their designated bases, soldiers are soon given a job to do based on job openings. For most, the remainder of their service is spent at this base doing the same job. Although military life varies depending on what kind of job and specialized base one is at, life in the military is similar. Soldiers are required to refrain from expressing their political views and participating in political movements. They are also required to stay physically fit, as they will be tested in order to be promoted. One starts out as a private and serves as private first class for two months, corporal for six months, and sergeant for the remainder of their service. This period varies on whether one can pass periodical physical tests and can memorize all duties, drills and training they receive, with the test varying from a written, oral, or physical form. Monthly wages are given to these soldiers as well, which varies based on their rank. One can receive from 306,100 won ($256) to 405,700 won as of 2019. Soldiers are also given 28 days leave throughout their service to use as they want. They are also given 10 days to use as day-leave or overnight leave that can be used on weekends or national holidays. Other than this, the only way a soldier can leave the base is if duty calls, are awarded a leave for merit, or are sick and in need of medical attention outside the base. After one's service Although a soldier regains their civilian status after completing their military service, they are still designated as reserve forces for eight years and have to participate in an annual military training session for six of those years. Then, they are designated to the Civil Defense Corps and will participate in annual education sessions and training until they are 40 years old. Since the end of the Korean War in 1953, both Koreas have been in a stalemate. As soldiers are continuously guarding the border and training for the worst, South Korea's security is striving to be ensured. Jung Myung-suk email@example.com (Thumbnail Photo courtesy of edaily)

- 2019.1007[HYU High] 8 Representative Hanyang Researchers, Leading the 4th Industrial Revolution
The era of technological revolution is changing at a frightening pace! Where is university research heading in the days of the 4th Industrial Revolution? What is the secret to Hanyang’s outstanding research that has been leading the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution? The answer can be found in Hanyang’s 80-year history. For the past 80 years, beginning in 1939 when Hanyang University launched its education program based on the founder’s idea of “making the nation rich and strong through technology education,” that idea has continued through the university’s educational philosophy of offering “practical academics.” Hanyang University has always supported research and education that help society and the nation, and this has gained even more significance in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. The following eight representative researchers and their astonishing research results show how Hanyang University is leading the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Professor Kim Ki-hyun, Civil and Environmental Engineering Developed technology that eliminates air pollution-causing matter Professor Kim Ki-hyun has developed a new material related to improving the environmental analysis system that controls and manages Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and bad smells. Benzene and formaldehyde are kinds of VOCs, which are class one carcinogens that can be produced in daily life when people cook, drive, or smoke. Current air purification technology has limitations in detecting and eliminating such carcinogens, since they only specialize in dust elimination. Combining metal and carbon organic matter, Professor Kim developed Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF) and succeeded in adsorbing and eliminating such pollution particles. In addition, he simultaneously developed technology that effectively concentrates samples, such as toxic substances, and suggested a new air quality diagnosis method that analyses 22 kinds of odor causing materials which have been designated by the Ministry of Environment. Professor Kim Sang-wook, Computer Science Developed big data graph analyzing technology which is 40 times faster than the current method Professor Kim developed a single-machine-based graph engine called RealGraph, which has big data analysis capabilities 40 times faster than that of current technology. While planning RealGraph, he used the phenomenon that “real world graph data shows power-law degree distribution, not normal distribution.” (An example of the power-law degree is how on Instagram most users communicate with a small number of other users, while very few users communicate with a large number of users.) Existing graph engines did not consider power-law degree distribution which caused uneven workload distribution and inefficient memory access, but Professor Kim applied new strategies to solve those problems. As a result, RealGraph performed up to 44 times faster than existing engines when processing large-scale graph big data. His engine is expected to be utilized in various fields such as social media analysis and protein structure analysis, due to its fast analyzing capacity. Professor Kim Seon-jeong, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Artificial Muscle, 40 times stronger than human muscle Professor Kim Seon-Jeong, together with an international research team including researchers from the University of Texas, developed a new “sheath-run” artificial muscle that is 40 times stronger than human muscle. This newly developed sheath-run artificial muscle has 9 times higher performance than the original artificial muscle, and it was able to solve the economic problem which has been seen as a limitation of existing artificial muscles. Since it no longer uses carbon nanotubes which have a high manufacturing price, and instead uses commercial threads such as nylon and silk, the newly developed technology has a lower material price and thus a much higher commercial value. Professor Sun Yang-kook, Energy Engineering Developed a cost-effective, high capacity electronic battery The main field of research for Professor Sun Yang-kook is cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries and next-generation battery materials. Cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries are a crucial key to solving some critical issues related to electric cars - short driving distance and high cost. In the manufacturing of electric cars, 60% of the total cost is for materials, 44% of which is spent on cathode materials. Therefore, the price of electric cars could be made more affordable if one could lower the price of cathode materials. Using more nickel would help to lower the price and increase the battery capacity, but then stability and battery life would underperform due to increased heat. That is, battery capacity and battery stability and life are in inverse proportions. Professor Sun developed a Full Concentration Gradient Structure cathode material (with increased nickel content in the center and increased manganese content at the surface) to solve the issue. Cheap and stable cathode materials with large capacities can now be manufactured, and these are being used in Kia Motors’ electric vehicle, the Niro EV. Professor Sunwoo Myung-ho, Automotive Engineering Developed an autonomous vehicle Professor Sunwoo Myung-ho is a world-class leader in the field of autonomous vehicles. Last March, professor Sunwoo succeeded in operating a 5G based urban, self-driving automobile for the first time in the world with LG U+. It was the first time that a 5G self-driving car succeeded in driving autonomously through congested urban roads full of vehicles. The key to the autonomous vehicle that his team developed are the high-end sensors and deep-learning-based AI. In fact, sensors such as Lidar, Radar, and cameras recognize the nearby environment, and the AI technology drives and responds to lane changes in the front, rear, and sides of other vehicles. Because corresponding AI technology is based on deep learning, it continuously accumulates and analyzes data such as driving on roads, situations, and variables and continues to evolve on its own. Professor Sung Tae-hyun, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Enhancement of energy harvesting technology to change waste energy into electricity Energy Harvesting technology, which is the primary research of professor Sung Tae-hyun , is a method using an independent source of current for sensors by converting the light energy of fluorescent light and vibration energy that are being discarded at industrial sites into electric energy. There are various Internet of Things (IoT) sensors on the industrial site. Most are supplied with electricity by wire, which makes the installation site limited. If an energy harvester, used as an independent source of power for sensors, is created, products that utilize IoT sensors can be built in various places. The energy harvesting technology of Professor Sung Tae-hyun’s research team is the world's best. In particular, the Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting technology, effective in converting vibration energy into electrical energy, is most prominent. Additionally, professor Sung stated, “Hanyang university possesses the record of 9.38 mW/cm2, which is 16 times the previous world’s highest value of 0.58 mW/cm2 (previously held by Shanghai Jiao Tong University), and we are reaching for 12 mW/cm2 through this research.” Professor Lee Young-moo, Energy Engineering Developed technology that drops the price of hydrogen fuel cell to 1/10 Professor Lee Young-moo is an expert of polymer engineering, including a separator, carbon dioxide separation, fuel cells, and polymer materials. He is also famous for serving as the 14th president of Hanyang University while also continuing his research and even publishing in the Scientific Reports Journal ‘Nature’ during his tenure as president of Hanyang. He developed a hydrogen fuel cell separator, which imitates the moisture retention function of cacti. This technology is expected to lower not only environmental pollution but also the price of electric cars that use hydrogen fuel cells. Hydrogen fuel cells obtain energy through chemical reactions occurring in multiple layers of electrolyte membranes. However, existing electrolyte membranes have a limitation in performance at high temperatures and an inability to maintain moisture for chemical reactions. Professor Lee solved this problem by developing a new membrane modeled after a cactus. With this technology, the hydrogen fuel cell can be made at one-tenth of the existing price, ultimately reducing the price of hydrogen cars by up to 30%. Professor Jang Joon-hyuk, Electronic Engineering Developed a voice recognition technology based on artificial intelligence Professor Jang Joon-hyuk developed ‘Pluto,’ the first embedded AI speaker in Korea that can recognize voices without connecting to the internet. The existing AI speakers produced by domestic IT companies needed to be connected to a cloud server for voice recognition causing a network delay and security issues in the process. Professor Jang solved this problem by applying an embedded method that incorporates a large voice recognition system with a capacity of 200,000 words into the hardware system. To facilitate voice recognition in a long-distance environment, he developed a ‘beamforming’ technology that eliminates noise for smooth, long-distance voice recognition and a ‘speaker recognition technology’ that only recognizes registered user voices and filters any voices coming from the TV. He also conducted university-industry cooperation with global IT companies with such original technologies. Professor Jang is continuously developing voice recognition technology that can control every device with only one’s voice similar to his other completed technologies like Bixby of Samsung, AI car doctor and voice recognition engine of Hyundai Motors, Q Voice of LG, and ‘Chloe,’ an Incheon International Airport guide robot. * The list of researchers follows the (Korean) alphabetical order.
