Professor Seong Heon Kim joined the Department of Physics at Jeonbuk National University in September 2021. His Ph.D. thesis focused on developing a low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope (STM), an extremely high-resolution microscope that scans a sample surface with a sharp tip, and studying the electronic structure of nano materials using the STM. After completing his Ph.D. and post-doctoral studies, he worked at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) as a Staff/Principal Researcher for 7 years. During his time at SAIT, his research expanded to various materials and devices, such as 2D nano materials, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), solar cells, and more.
In September 2019, he decided to leave SAIT and joined Myongji University as an assistant professor. After serving as an assistant professor for 2 years, he joined Jeonbuk National University as an associate professor.
His research is primarily focused on nanoscale characterization of various materials and devices, utilizing a range of surface analysis tools, including scanning probe microscopy (SPM). Recently, his interests have centered around energy-storage and conversion materials and devices. Particularly, he is dedicated to uncovering the degradation mechanisms of LIBs and perovskite solar cells at the nanoscale.
