Using a hybrid bottom-up and top-down micro- & nano-fabrication approach, we are developing a new generation of polymer-based solar cells and Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) with new electrode materials and architecture. The group also uses computational photovoltaics to develop new insight and fundamental understanding of interfacial issues between photoactive layers and electrode materials. Our work in this area has been patented and licensed to a company.
