We aim to lead the new generation of semiconductor based technology innovation by semiconductor materials and device research.
The current silicon based technology is rapidly
reaching the limit in decreasing its size and speed.
KIST’s Post-Silicon Semiconductor Institute is working to develop advanced semiconductors using new materials and exhibiting superior performance to silicon-based technology. The goal is to produce semiconductors that are 10x faster and use 1/10 the current power consumption. Research is focused on oxide semiconductors, spin electronic devices, opto-electronic convergence devices and attachable electronic devices for health monitoring.
PSI aims to explain the experimentally observed phenomena in both the industry-relevant technology and the quantum physics. The institute aims to develop new technologies beyond Si-electronics technology and bridge the lab sector to the industry sector.
Post-Si Semiconductor Institute (PSI) pursues the world leading research in the field of materials and devices, focusing on post-Si technology and quantum electronics.
To build a full cycle, mutually complementary, and efficient system. Material development->Material synthesis->Improvement in functions.
