韩国科学技术院教授、主任Soon Hyung Hong
Prof. Hong completed his Ph.D. in Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University in 1984. After R&D experience at Stanford University as a research associate, he joined Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)as a professor in 1986, where he is directing researchand education on nanomaterials and nanocomposites. Prof. Hong pioneered to develop frontier technologies for fabrication processes and applications of multi-functional nanocomposites,by a novelmolecular level mixing process, in 2005 and developed super-strong carbon nanotube fibers by applying a bio-inspired nanotechnology in 2011. Prof. Hong has published 205 international journal papers and registered 140 patents mainly in areas of nanomaterials and nanocomposites. Prof. Hong had served as a Managing Director of the Office of Strategic R&D Planning (OSP) in the Ministry of Knowledge Economy(MKE),Director for Basic Science and Engineering in National Research Foundation (NRF) of Korea, Presidents of the Korea Society for Composite Materials(KSCM)and the Korean Powder Metallurgy Institute(KPMI) and the Director of KAIST Institute for the NanoCentury (KINC). He currently is acting as the President of SAMPE Korea, and members of the Korea Academy of Science and Technology (KAST) and the National Academy of Engineering of Korea (NAEK). He had served as theeditor-in-chief of Nano Convergence, and is serving as editorial member of Composite Science and Technology.
Prof. Yang started fiber related study from the university life in Department of Textile Engineering, Hanyang University, Korea (1971-1981). He moved to Textile School, North Carolina State University (NCSU) to study further in Fiber and Polymer Science Program (1982-1988). He researched mesophase behaviors of cellulose in a unique solvent, NH3/NH4SCN for his PhD. After he got a professor position at Chonnam National University, his interest has stayed on the fibers consisting of carbon atoms. The desires on the carbon fiber were developed through research visit of Department of Applied Science for Electronics and Materials, Kyushu University, Japan (1995). The research background gave him a chance to do researches on electrospinning and resulted the success of the process developing mass production of organic polymer,100kg/day with collaborations of NanoTechnics Co. (CEO, Yong Min Kim) and the technology were transferred to DuPont, U.S.A.(2002). The commercialization of the electrospinning opened to him another chance to study the electrospinning based carbon nanofibers. From the researches, he published over 100 papers on the electrospinning, carbon nanofibers, and their applications. He is still looking for the process of electrospun carbon fibers with strong mechanical properties. He published 70 papers and 24 patents in recent 5years from the related studies. He became achair professorat Chonnam National University in Feb 2017 after his retirement from the same university.
