Q: 귀하의 진로가 나노기술에 초점을 맞추고 있다는 것을 처음 알게 된 것은 언제입니까? 
Lee: When I visited Univ. Texas at Dallas (UTD) in 2002 as a visiting researcher, I joined a team working on carbon nanotube (CNT) synthesis and applications. In that team, I worked on fabrication of CNT-based electronic devices.    

Q: 현재 어떤 나노기술 응용을 연구하고 있나요?   
Lee: Nanoscale transistors, Biosensors, phase change memory, electromechanical systems. All these devices can be used as a component in IT(information technology)/BT(biotechnology) systems.     Q: What’s the most rewarding thing about working with nanotechnology? 
Lee: It is a chance to get an insight into nature.     

Q: Is there an example you can provide that shows how something you’ve worked on has positively impacted the world? 
Lee: Our group has fabricated nanoscale electronic devices which will be commercialized in the near future for a next-generation IT systems. For example, those IT systems can be utilized for sensing biosignals as an embedded in wearable form.     

Q: 지금까지 나노기술이 세계에 미친 가장 큰 영향은 무엇이라고 생각하시나요?   
It makes mankind understand nature further through investigating and expanding knowledge on the ‘nano-world.’     

Q: 미래에 나노기술이 어떻게 응용될 것으로 예상하는지 예를 들어주세요.   
Biosensors, advanced memory devices, advanced electronic devices. These devices should be very compact, low cost, have a low power consumption, and be lightweight. Nanotechnology can meet those requirements.     

Q: 팀 상황에서 더 많이 일하시나요, 아니면 혼자 더 많이 일하시나요? 
 I work more as a part of a team.     

Q: 팀으로 더 많이 일한다면 팀원들의 다른 전문 분야는 무엇입니까?    
 Physicists, biologists, chemists, and (electrical/material based) engineers.     

Q: 대학에서의 훈련이 나노기술 작업에 도움이 되었나요? 
 Yes. In my research projects, advanced characterization and fabrication tools are very crucial. My university (that is, POSTECH) has provided those very good facilities.    

Q. 멘토가 있나요? 대학 시절에 그랬나요? 
No, I did not.  

Q: 만약 다시 이 일을 해야 한다면, 여전히 나노기술 응용에 집중하시겠습니까? 
Yes, because I has been happy with the work and am sure that nanotechnology will bring more benefits to society.   Q: 고등학생이나 대학생이 나노기술에 관심이 있다면, 그러한 역할을 맡을 준비를 돕기 위해 어떤 조언을 해주실 수 있나요?   
 Expand your studies in physics, chemistry, and biology, and get experience working with others.
