Our research sits in the big, fun space between materials science, solid state physics, and opto-electronic technologies. Our current projects fall into three categories:
1. Photoconductivity: Fundamental understanding, control through material processing, and utilization in device technology.
2. Layered and phase-change materials: Developing new materials processing methods and demonstrating new uses for layered chalcogenide materials.
3. Complex chalcognides and highly-polarizable semiconductors: Developing chalcogenide electronic materials in the perovskite and related complex, three-dimensional crystal structures.
