Organic Thin Films

and Nanostructures Lab


Polymers are essential to modern life. Yet there still remains a wealth of knowledge to discover regarding novel polymeric materials, processing techniques, and applications.

Our lab explores polymers for plastic power, enabling flexible or structural batteries and capacitors, as well as polyelectrolytes, which are integral components in smart surfaces and coatings.
