Our research focuses on chemical sensors. The application areas include healthcare,
environmental monitoring, industrial safety, energy and security. We utilize semiconducting materials –
inorganic (silicon based) and organic (conducting polymer based). We look into the transport phenomena of
the analytes to the reacting surfaces, surface reactions, charge transport in the semiconducting
materials, physical modification (e.g. utilizing
nanostructures) and chemical modification (e.g.
utilizing self assembled monolayers) of the reacting
surfaces, materials design and processing, device design
and fabrication. For the organic semiconducting based
material based sensors, we are looking at printable
techniques (e.g. inkjet printing) on flexible substrates
for large area/volume applications. The materials
processing studies done here for sensors can find
applications in other devices such as light emitting
diodes and solar cells.
