My interest is in the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials, such as semiconductor nanocrystals, organic pervoskite crystals and polymer-inorganic hybrid materials for optoelectronic applications. These materials can be deposited via solution based processes like spin-casting, inkjet printing and roll-to-roll printing to make solar cells, light emitting devices (LEDs), photodetectors, sensors and other devices that make use of the unique optical and electronic properties of nanoscale materials. Thin film devices produced by these methods are just now beginning to replace older technologies in fields like displays, solar power generation and printable transistors.
