  • MNS (Materials and Devices)
  • My current research activities can be broadly grouped into thin film growth and characterization of a) oxides and b) nano-composites.
  • For oxide thin film growth I employ the sol-gel method, aerosol-assisted CVD and ALD and in the case of nano-composites the sol-gel method, chemical solution deposition and aerosol-assisted CVD are used. In the past, my activities were centered on basic research into novel materials systems, primarily in relation to sol-gel and inorganic-organic hybrid materials systems. However, over time my research activities began to become much more applied in nature, including more work on development of thin film solutions to meet  a need, or solve a technical issue. As such specific needs generally required growth processes with a great degree of control, I tended to become more involved in aerosol-assisted CVD and ALD process development.
  • In the future I see myself continuing in the development of thin films by both aerosol-assisted CVD and ALD to meet both internal and external requirements. I have targeted  a) growth of nanocomposite thin films incorporating silicon and other metallic nanoparticles for photovoltaic and sensor applications and  b) roll-to-roll ALD coating of fabrics and  other porous membrane materials as my primary research topics, going forward. I will continue to apply these topics to the themes of Energy and Health/Medical in which I am currently active.
