Scientific Interests and Work
As a graduate researcher at the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR), Dr. Kim was associated with the Materials Research Center in his interest to synthesize and characterize CMR magnites and iron oxides. In the process, Dr. Kim gained expertise in related instrumentations. As a participant in the 5th National School on Neutron and X-ray scattering school conducted by Argonne National Laboratory in 2003, Dr. Kim learned the latest experimental techniques using a neutron beam and photon source, and gained the latest knowledge of functional nano/smart materials in industrial and biomedical applications.
Experience in crystallography using X-ray and neutron diffraction experimentation, and VSM, PPMS and SQUID for characterization of magnetic and other physical properties. The studies in the structural related magnetic and electronic transport properties of disordered CMR half-metallic materials. Giant magnetoresistance (GMR) multilayer thin film and Cu1-xCox granular system for making a high density magnetic storage and semi-conductors.
