Kisik Koh received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea, in 2007 and 2009 respectively. His Master's research was for patterning and transferring carbon nanotubes by using Focused Ion Beam (FIB) and laser assisted transfer techniques for MEMS/NEMS applications. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering with exploring high frequency magnetic materials for on-chip RF inductors.
On-Chip Micro-Inductor [BPN574]
On-chip inductors are key passive elements to high-power and radio frequency (RF)
integrated circuits (ICs). This project aims to realize super-compact on-chip micro-inductor with
magnetic media for high-power and RF IC's, including: 1) to explore low-loss, high resonance frequency
magnetic material for inductor application; 2) to develop magnetic-material integration process; 3) to
realize the super-compact magnetic-embedded inductor. The long-term objectives for this project are
to resolve the current problem of lacking compact-size high-performance on-chip inductors, and then
reduces the whole circuit cost significantly and helps the practical realization of RF systems-on-a-
chip (SoCs) for real-world applications.
