Myong Y. Choi0000-0001-5729-5418
Myong Yong Choi began his scientific career by receiving B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Gyeongsang National University, Jinju, Republic of Korea; University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho, USA, under the direction of Prof. Jeanne L. McHale; and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC, USA, under the direction of Prof. Roger E. Miller and Prof. Tomas Baer; in 1998, 2002, and 2006, respectively. After completing his Postdoctoral Fellowship with Prof. Andrey F. Vilesov at University Southern California in 2007, he joined the Gyeongsang National University Chemistry Department , where he serves now as an Associate Professor. Over the years in his doctoral course and postdoctoral period, he concentrated on the use of infrared lasers to investigate the structure and dynamics of small biomolecules in superfluid helium nanodroplets as a medium for preparing ultracold samples. After he came back to his alma mater, he has been working on the use of IR and UV lasers to study the structural and dynamical information about small drug and pollutant molecules by using resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization spectroscopy and IR-UV (UV-UV) hole-burning spectroscopy. Another research field that he is currently focusing on is the use of pulsed lasers to ablate metal plate in liquid phase to generate metal nanoparticles. This technique has been confirmed to be a simple and clean nanofabrication tool for obtaining specific nanomaterials.
