Research Interests

We are an organic electronics and nanoelectronics group whose overarching research goals include:

(i) combining material engineering with interface engineering to boost the performance of organic electronics devices
(ii) designing new device architecture and fabrication process to realize low cost and high performance devices and
(ii) synthesis high quality nanoparticles and integrate the nanoparticles into organic electronic devices for solid state lighting, energy conversion, energy storage, and low-cost sensor application.
