Professor Suh applied the structure of the fur on beetles' wings that allows the wings to be fixed on their body and their research was published as the cover paper of Advanced Material's January issue.

[Research] Neopoly, a campus-based company at SNU, developed metal-induced lateral crystallization (MILC) technology that can be applied to the production of large-size organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon (LTPS) technology, a commercially prevalent method as of now to crystallize raw silicon, has a weakness when it comes to producing large-size OLEDs due to its application of lasers. "MILC technology can solve such problems as it only crystallizes the critical parts after creating thin-film transistors (TFTs)," said Professor JOO Seung Ki of SNU's College of Engineering, who is also the CEO of Neopoly.
