Amorphous Metal Oxides
Electron transport in metal oxide semiconductors primarily takes place through spherical ns-type orbitals, significantly reducing the dependence of performance on structural order.
Contactless Microwave Conductivity
This is a technique to rapidly characterize the electronic properties of semiconductors without the need to deposit electrodes; significantly reducing ambiguity with respect to device-based methods.
Thin Film Transistors
Thin film transistors enable a range of charge-transport studies and proof-of-principle device demonstrations, employing a range of potential semiconductor systems.
We study the properties of solar cells based on a range of novel materials, with the goal of improving power conversion efficiency, stability and reliability.
Charge Transport Models
The charge transport process in flexible devices based on disordered semiconductor are distinct from traditional devices; we develop mathematical models to better describe this behavior.
