Dr. Moon J. Kim

Moon J. Kim, Ph.D. is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Texas at Dallas. He is the Director of the University of Texas at Dallas’ (UTD’s) new Nano-Characterization Facility. He is also an adjunct professor at the UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center. He earned his Ph.D. (1988) in Materials Science from Arizona State University (ASU).
Moon’s expertise includes high resolution electron microscopy and heterogeneous materials integration by wafer bonding. He has conducted extensive interdisciplinary materials research involving state-of-the-art HREM which is an essential tool for nanoscience and nanotechnology. He also has designed and built a unique ultra high vacuum (UHV) wafer bonding unit. He has authored/coauthored over 150 refereed papers, and given over 45 invited lectures and seminars at National/International conferences, Universities and Research Institutes. He is a member of the Microscopy Society of America, Materials Research Society, and IEEE.
He supervises UTD’s Nano & Beyond Research Laboratory. His primary research focus is nano-fabrication and the manipulation and characterization of materials for electronic and photonic applications. His current research in the lab includes heterogeneous materials integration by wafer bonding, nanoscale strains in Si CMOS, ultra low-k dielectrics, scaled microelectromechanical systems/nano-electromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS), nano-electronic materials, nano-medicine, and nano-studio.
