About Dr. Do Young Kim

Dr. Do Young Kim is an Assistant Professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the Oklahoma State University. He has the expertise in fabrication and characterization of organic electronic devices (OLED and Organic photovoltaic cell) as well as inorganic electronic devices (poly-Si TFT and colloidal PbS nanocrystal photodetector). Prior to joining the Oklahoma State University he was a Research Scientist as well as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Florida (2009-2015) where he invented a light-weight, low cost energy efficient infrared sensitive organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology that can be fabricated into infrared imaging sensors. He is a co-founder and a Scientific Advisor of two startup companies – NIRVision, LLC and nVerPix, LLC based on organic/inorganic nanomaterial and device technologies. From 2002 to 2006 He also worked as a research scientist at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), South Korea developing the poly-Si TFT technology on plastic substrates which is a core technology in flexible OLED displays. Dr. Kim received his PhD from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Florida in 2009. He also received his B.S. degree (1999) and M.S. degree (2002) in physics from Kyung Hee University, South Korea. His research interests are in colloidal inorganic nanomaterials, organic semiconductors, and their use in optoelectronics, nanoelectronics, and energy/bio applications. Dr. Kim has 35 publications, 17 issued patents, another 19 patent applications pending and 74 conference presentations.
