The sun is the most abundant energy source available on earth; however, current technology allows for the utilization of only a small fraction of the sun's potential. The focus of this group is on the use of aerosol science and technology to harness this resource to provide environmentally benign energy production methodologies. Our group relies on gas phase synthesis methodologies to produce novel materials to harvest solar energy.
Areas of focus includes:
Nanostructured thin films synthesis using Aerosol Chemical Vapor Deposition
(ACVD) for solar cells and batteries
Synthesis of transparent conducting oxide using Flame Aerosol Reactor (FlAR)
Nano-biohybrid solar cell and water splitting
Kinetics of silicon dust formation and kerf recycling
