We are pioneering the materials science (growth, processing, and properties) and engineering of sp2-bonded nanocarbon materials including:
- (n,m)-controlled carbon nanotubes
- Graphene nanostructures; and,
- Organic semiconductors,
for next generation appplications in:
- Semiconductor electronics
- Optoelectronics; and,
We currently have efforts in:
- Understanding carbon nanotube sorting and assembly
- Light-harvesting devices based on type-controlled semiconducting carbon nanotubes
- Understanding and controlling graphene CVD
- Bottom-up growth of graphene nanostructures
- Graphene nanostructure edge-control; and,
- Graphene/organic hybrids with controlled crystallinity.
We couple fundamental investigations of synthesis, growth, and processing with in-depth studies of the underpinning mechanisms that control the properties and behaviors of these materials in devices.
