Research Information

Nanostructured Materials: Nanomaterials include: nanoparticles, nanowires, and nanolayered films of metals, semiconductors, and polymers that have potential in solar and mechanical energy harvesting and conversion, electrical energy storage, and tailoring energy transfer processes and efficiency.

Fabrication and Functionalization Techniques: pulsed energy (electron-beam and laser) deposition (PED and PLD), glancing angle deposition (GLAD), thermal and sputtering depositions, and physical vapor growth.

Nanomaterial-based Applications: Nanostructured materials for photovoltaics, multilayered polymer systems for capacitors and mechanical energy harvesting and sensing devices.
