Polymers team up for nanoelectronics manufacturing - nanotechweb.org

"...researchers from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, US, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland have come up with a hybrid method for patterning silicon that exploits a mixture of polymers."

KAIST's origins go back to the Principal law of Science in Korea (1971?) But 1980 and 1989 mergers and changes brought it to its current form. (from the website)
