Our Researches

Our group focuses on the field of novel Spintronics materials and devices prerequisite for fourth revolution and new biomedical technologies. Research motto is Innovative “First Mover” beyond “World Best”. Accordingly, our group has developed a sensor milestone based on coherent perpendicular magnetoresistance (PMR) in magnetic multilayers aiming to forthcoming IoT and communication industrial applications. Also our group leads the Spintrophoresis, integrated spin devices with micro-fluidic channel, toward the multiplexed cell tweezers and molecular diagnosis platform. International cooperation with world-wide leading groups is encouraged for the development of up-to-date devices and innovative technologies.
