Organic and Flexible Electronics Laboratory
With a focus on organic semiconductor materials and devices relevant to large-area and flexible electronics, we investigate the relationship between structure, processing, device structure, and device performance.
Current research areas:
Organic Solar Cell: Assessment of novel donor-acceptor materials for improved stability and efficiency.
Metal Halide Perovskite Devices: Analysis of alternate hole & electron transporting materials and interface engineering for higher stability and efficiency.
Fundamental studies on charge transport in organic semiconductor materials and devices.
