Electronic Nanomaterials & Devices Laboratory
Synthesis and characterization of quantum dots and carbon Nanomaterials, Design and fabrication of ultracapacitors/photodetectors/photocatalysts based on colloidal nanocrystals
The research focus of our group centers on (1) synthesis and characterization of quantum dot/grapheme hybrid nanomaterials, (2) photocatalysis of metal/semiconductor heterostructure nanocrystals, (3) spintronic devices, and (4) design and fabrication of ultracapacitors based on colloidal nanocrystals and nanowires.
- Synthesis and Characterization of Quantum Dot/Graphene Hybrid Nanomaterials
The presence of organic ligands controls the size of the crystals and prevents surfaces from undergoing unwanted reactions. This approach has provided a unique solution to precise control over nanocrystal size and shapes in a colloidal phase. The versatility of the synthesis sparked research interest in the study of the size-dependent properties of colloidal inorganic nanocrystals. For instance, the energy gap (or optical gap) of semiconductor nanocrystals is size-tunable as a result of quantum confinement.
Despite the outstanding control of their structural and optical properties, the use of the nanocrystals in electronic devices has remained elusive, as the organic ligands generally make the nanocrystal film insulating. One way to address the problem is to replace the organic ligands with graphitic carbon materials. In this study, we synthesize nanometer-scale graphenes colloidally and use them as a passivation layer for the nanocrystals. The novel hybrid structures with improved conductivity ensure the use of the materials in a range of device applications, such as photodetectors, photodiodes, photovoltaics, and spintronics.
- Photocatalysis of Metal/Semiconductor Heterostructure Nanocrystals
A relatively new trend in the colloidal nanocrystals field is the synthesis of heterostructure nanomaterials comprising various functional components. The heterostructure architecture enables the fine-tuning of optical and electrical properties. This motif has been utilized for producing new emergent properties arising from strong interactions between different components located in the nanoscale proximity from each other. Control of the dimension of each component permits the comprehensive engineering of electronic energy state configuration within the nanoscale architecture.
Our group studies the metal/semiconductor heterostructure nanocrystals and their use in photocatalytic reactions. To have a better understanding of how we can improve catalytic activity and selectivity of the metal components, we investigate the charge transfer, charge carrier dynamics, and electron-hole separation within the heterostructure nanocrystals.

- Ultracapacitors based on Colloidal Nanocrystals and Nanowires
