The purpose of this area of research is the design and deposition of novel functional materials at the micro and nanoscale using low cost and environmentally up-scalable manufacturing technologies. Combining knowledge in chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to understand the interface between materials chemistry and device engineering for applications related with temperature responsive and electroactive materials.

Electrochromics

  • Growth and characterization of metal oxide coatings using Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition.
  • Growth of porous metal oxide nanostructures using one-pot direct hydrothermal and electrochemical deposition to suit both the plastic and glass coating industry.
  • Construction of devices with low cost, high durability and practical sizes using the combination of all techniques
