Intro to Ryu Group
My group studies chemical principles that rule the world of low dimensions. All lives and things consist of numerous atoms and molecules. Not only three-dimensional bulk structures, but they also form tiny ones including quantum dots in displays and catalysts, nanopores in cellular membranes, stacked atom-thick sheets in battery electrodes, nanowires in functional materials. In materials that perform functions, whether bio or inorganic, molecules flow in and out as reactants and products along with energy. In photocatalysts and photovoltaics, for example, energy absorbed from the sun is circulated in the form of excitons or charges. Understanding the flow of matter and energy (transport phenomenon) is one essential task of modern chemistry and material sciences.

My group also develops various cutting-edge laser spectroscopy and microscopy methods. We utilize scattering, absorption, and emission of light generated after interaction with the matter in the low dimensions: time-independent vs time-resolved modes for absorption and emission, spontaneous vs stimulated Raman scattering, linear vs nonlinear spectroscopy. All methods are built on high-performance optical microscopes to target the tiny worlds.

Currently, my group focuses on inorganic and organic 2D materials. Graphene, an inorganic representative for example, is only one-atom-thick but can be as wide as hundreds of microns or even more. Graphene is still an aromatic molecule, gigantically conjugated. Since its first isolation from graphite in 2004, scientists have made various exciting observations (see an essay or an academic review written by one of the 2010 Nobel laureates in Physics). Recently, we created 2D molecular crystals of polyacenes, which will be the first generation of organic 2D materials. We are much excited about the new properties of the soft 2D sheets that the spectroscopic tools are revealing.
