Research Interests

In our research we use molecular and mesoscale simulation to discover and interpret fundamental relationships between molecular structure and thermodynamic properties in advanced materials. In the last decade an unprecedented array of nanoengineered materials with intriguing functionalities have been synthesized. Many of these advanced nanomaterials are expected to have promising futures in applications such as pharmaceuticals, electronic and optical devices, environmentally responsive coatings, energy storage, and biomedical implants. The field of nanomaterials is inherently interdisciplinary and we work closely with experimental groups in chemical engineering, material science, and chemistry. By combining insights from theory, simulation, and experiment, we gain a clearer understanding of how processing environments and end-use conditions impact the functionality and performance of nanoengineered materials.

Research Interests

  • Fundamental studies, notably optically and electrically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR and EDMR, respectively) of π-conjugated materials & organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
    • Our fundamental studies focus on the dynamics of polarons, singlet excitons, triplet excitons, bipolarons, and intrinsic defects, and their affect on thin film and OLED properties.
  • (Combinatorial) fabrication and studies of OLEDs
    • OLEDs are now emerging in commercial devices.
    • The current challenges are to improve the lifetime and efficiency of the devices, in particular at high brightness.
  • Development of structurally integrated organic light-emitting device (OLED)/luminescent chemical and biological sensors.
    • This new sensor platform may revolutionize the science and technology of chemical and biological sensors, ultimately leading to very inexpensive (essentially disposable) multianalyte microsensor arrays.
