Nanostructured Optoelectronic Materials and Devices
Project Description

Materials made of nano/micro-structures have unique physical properties, such as fast carrier transport, high surface-to-volume ratio, mechanical flexibility, sub-wavelength optical waveguiding, etc. These intriguing properties can be harnessed for a variety of applications in electronics and photonics. This project aims to design, fabricate and characterize various nanomaterial-based electronic and optoelectronic devices, such as photodetectors, LEDs, memristors, etc.
