    About Flexible OptoElectronics Laboratory (FOEL)

    The flexible optoelectronic laboratory of GIST’s School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering is a young laboratory that started in August 2016.

    As of February 2020, a total of 16 researchers are working together, and despite the short study period, many interesting results are being reported. Our lab is conducting research in three major areas.

    Research at Flexible OptoElectronics Laboratory (FOEL)

    Advanced optoelectronic devices/systems:

    It deals with flexible displays, micro LEDs, and flexible solar cells that are frequently reported in the media recently. In addition, we develop semiconductor optical devices that did not exist before, such as ultra-wide-angle cameras that resemble insect eyes, semiconductor devices that dissolve in water, and LEDs inserted into the body. It also includes system-level 3D cameras, riders, and the underlying technology essential to them.

    Multi-functional nanophotonics:

    Photonics technology is a technology that controls the interaction between light and matter through very small structures. These include photonic crystal structures, plasmonics, and metamaterials. In this lab, we develop photonic structures that do not only have one function but have various characteristics at the same time. It includes components essential for next-generation electronic products such as ultra-thin transparent electrodes, metal color structures, and broadband anti-reflective films.

    Next-generation optical healthcare systems: 

    The optical components and devices developed above can be applied to healthcare technology. For example, you can measure oxygen saturation, read biorhythms, and use it for beauty using skin-attached LEDs.
