Nature-Inspired Approach to Nanotechnology

Prof. Jong-Souk Yeo

Yonsei Institute of Convergence Technology, Yonsei University, Korea

Biomimetics, Biomimicry, Nature-Inspired, or Biologically Inspired technologies are all referring to the emerging fields where innovations are strongly influenced by the wisdom from nature or biological systems. Biomimetics is the scientific approach of learning new principles and processes based on systematic study of living organisms, plants, or animals in order to develop novel engineering systems through the convergence of biology, materials science, cognitive science, robotics, and nanotechnology. Especially, the multi-functionality offered by the nature can enable various applications with the help of nanotechnology. Multiple levels of approaches are feasible from nature-inspiration – adaptation of how nature works, adoption of what nature provides, or replication of natural processes and functionalities for eco-friendly, sustainable, highly efficient technologies. In this talk, nature-inspired approaches to nanotechnology will be introduced for next generation technologies in displays, semiconductors, and sensors enabled by biomimetic surface, optical, electronic, or bio functionalities.
