Jeehwan Kim joins Graphenea Scientific Advisory Board

Graphenea is proud to announce Prof. Jeehwan Kim as a new member of the Scientific Advisory Board. Professor Kim will offer his expertise on graphene growth and transfer.

Since 2015 Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Kim was a research staff member at IBM for eight years prior to that. At MIT he was engaged in growth of thin films, including graphene, and their various applications in optoelectronics. In the graphene community, he is most famous for his growth and transfer of GaN films on graphene for LED applications and first demonstration of wafer-scale single-crystalline graphene. Kim received IBM’s “Master Inventor” award in 2012. He was awarded 40 times in total at IBM for his inventions and patents.
