Nanomaterials offer great potential to deliver breakthroughs in the efficiency, cost and scalability of devices that produce electricity or fuels from sunlight. Our laboratory develops solar energy conversion and storage devices built from 0D, 1D and 2D nanoscale materials, integrating materials synthesis and fundamental opto-electronic characterization with device fabrication, testing, modeling and optimization.

We currently have projects on the following topics:

1. synthesis and assembly of semiconductor nanocrystals, nanorods and nanowires

2. surface chemistry of nanomaterials

3. quantum dot solar cells

4. nanorod photovoltaics

5. tandem water splitting devices
