I am interested in the development and fabrication of novel optoelectronic devices based upon organic and inorganic media. Together with Professor Steve Elston, we run a group in the Department of Engineering Science. The devices and technologies that we study include thin-film lasers, photo-voltaic devices, smart windows and display devices. I also work closely with the Dynamic Optics and Photonics group run by Professor Martin Booth and the Nanoscience and Technology run by Professor SeungNam Cha.
I’m interested in the effect of defects on material properties, ranging from single atom defects, such as vacancies and interstitials, to extended defects, such as dislocations, to macroscopic defects, for example cracks and voids.
