Our research group is interested in novel nanomaterials and processing techniques for energy and electronic applications. The research area ranges from the materials synthesis to the device physics. In materials end, we are developing novel organic conjugated materials including conducting polymers, nano-scale carbon materials and metal oxides. We apply the new materials to the devices such as polymer solar cells, dye-sensitized solar cells, thermoelectrics, supercapacitors, transparent electrodes, sensors etc¡¦ while exploring the structure/property relations. We also study actively for the novel processing methods of the nanomaterials to facilitate their practical uses. We are particularly interested in electro-spinning (spraying) techniques which can prepare a range of nanostructures of various materials.
