Congratulations to Sunghyun Hwang and Professor Yoon on their IEEE Photonics Technology Letters publication!

Congratulations to IMG Member Sunghyun Hwang and IMG Professor Yong-Kyu Yoon, on their recent publication in the journal IEEE Photonics Technology Letters! In this work, titled, “Silicon Phononic Nanowires Enable Ultra-Low Thermal Conductivity Measured by Raman Spectroscopy”, a novel device structure and precise measurement technique were introduced to assess the thermal conductivity of PnC-supported Si MEMS pixels using vacuum-based Raman spectroscopy.

Congratulations to Dr. Xin Tang, Keming Li, Miao Huang, and Chenyu Liang on their Oncogene publication!

Congratulations to IMG Professor, Dr. Xin Tang, and IMG Members, Keming Li, Miao Huang, and Chenyu Liang, on their recent publication in the journal Oncogene! This work, titled “Biophysics in tumor growth and progression: from single mechano-sensitive molecules to mechanomedicine”, highlights cancer mechanics ranging from molecular and cellular level to tissue level and clarifies functional crosstalk between mechanotransduction and oncogenic signaling.
