Transport and reactions
Our research activities are in the areas of transport phenomena, reaction engineering, materials processing and micro/nano fabrication
leading to the technology development of chemical sensors. We study the physical modification (e.g. utilizing nanostructures) and chemical
modification (e.g. utilizing self assembled monolayers) to fabricate functional sensing surfaces, transport phenomena of the analytes to these
surfaces (including in microfluidic units), the specific recognition reactions at these surfaces, charge transport in the semiconducting
materials, and device design. These chemical sensors (including biosensors) have applications in healthcare, environmental monitoring,
industrial safety, and security. We utilize both silicon based platforms and flexible printable organic electronics based platforms for these devices.
