Prof. Sungmo Moon
Sungmo Moon is a principal researcher at Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS) and a professor in the department of advanced materials engineering at University of Science and Technology (UST). He is the president of Korean Society of Surface Science and Engineering(KSSSE) and vice president of International Union for Surface Finishing (IUSF). He got his Ph.D at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 1997. He had stayed at the Corrosion and Protection Centre in University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) for anodizing research, Hokkaido Univ. for pattering of aluminium alloy using laser irradiation technique after anodizing and National Research Council of Canada (NRC) for studying of direct methanol oxidation for DMFC. He has been working for KIMS from 2003. His research area mainly includes surface treatments of light metals such as anodizing, plasma electrolytic oxidation and chemical conversion coatings of Al, Mg and Ti, corrosion failure analyses, surface modification for biomaterials, chemical and electrochemical polishing and polymer electrolyte fuel cells.
