By the necessities of convergence of big research facilities, the Synchrotron Radiation Application Laboratory (SRAL) has been started at PLS 6D UNIST-PAL Beamline of Pohang Accelerator Laboratory since Feb. 2015. The SRAL explores various scientific and industrial fields of physics, chemistry, material science, earth science, and life science using high flux synchrotron radiation X-ray source. We study on the structure-property relationship of organic and inorganic materials, functional polymers, battery materials, solar cell material, drugs, display materials, and etc. in order to understand, design, and improve their properties.

Major research field

Perovskites, ECRAM, EUV photoresist, battery, Catalysts, solar cells, fuel cells, carbon QD, polymers, and etc.

Desired field of research

Synthesis of EUV photoresist
