We are interested in the AMOLED pixel circuit for high resolution and transparent display. Using a few kinds of TFTs(a-Si, LTPS, and a-IGZO), we simulate pixel circuits having a high performance and achieve accurate output data against variation of threshold voltage, mobility, and OLED degradation. Recently, we start looking at display sensor and detector such as active pixel sensor (APS) and Si sensor array based on TFTs. After obtaining the simulation result, we have measured display circuit performance fabricated on glass or wafer. Through these measurement and analysis, we verified performance of display circuits and develop next generation circuits.

We are interested in the MEMS design and fabrication. Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is a technology that in its most general form can be defined as miniaturized mechanical and electro-mechanical elements (i.e., devices and structures) that are made using the techniques of micro-fabrication. We have demonstrated that various type of MEMS devices from relatively simple structures having no moving elements to complex electromechanical systems with moving elements. More recently, we start looking at MEMS devices on the flexible and stretchable substrate.
