Abstract

Nanostructured materials have new fundamental properties that have potential to impact several scientific and technological areas. Perhaps the most exciting application for nanostructured materials is for optoelectronics and electronic applications that could transform the way that electronic and optical energy are generated and used. However, significant challenges lie in the path of using these materials for electronic and optoelectronic applications. Oftentimes, there are interrelated challenges that must be overcome simultaneously such as improving stability, reducing toxicity/environmental impact, and integration into devices that can effectively harness their desirable properties. This talk will focus on some of my lab’s recent synthetic advancements work toward addressing some of these challenges. Specifically, I will discuss our recent work related to nanostructured and Pb-free halide perovskites thin films and nanocrystals, as well as recent work related to quantum confined Group IV (Si, Ge, and Sn) nanomaterials.
