Our research interests lie at the interface of analytical and material chemistry and focus at the synthesis of semiconductor nanomaterials and their applications for building various electronic devices and sensors.
Possible applications of organic semiconductors such as low
cost large screens, solar cells, electronic paper and disposable electronic
circuits made these materials one of the most active areas of research during
last fifteen years. Still at least 99.99% of electronics which we use today are
based on inorganic materials. The main reason is low durability of organic
semiconductors. One of the possible solutions to this problem is replacing some
organic components with nanocrystals of semiconductors
and metals (also known as quantum dots) which benefit both from high stability of inorganic materials and versatility
of organic substances.
The main focus of our research is building various
electronic devices based on nanocrystals of semiconductor and metals. Our more
specific research interests include:
The types of electronic devices include:
of semiconducting nanomaterials with desired optoelectronic and chemical
of ion and charge transport in thin films of organic semiconductors,
nanomaterials and redox polymers; environmental effects on charge transfer
for sensing applications
of electroluminescence in devices based on semiconducting nanocrystals
