Research Interest
Current Research Projects (2022-2025)​

Nanomaterials provide unique mechanical, electrical, and optical properties and have played an important role in recent advances in energy-related applications. This research group works on the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials with novel optical, thermal and electrical functionality. General topics of interest include:

  • Photovoltaics & Photodetectors
  • Photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion & Photocatalysis
  • Optical and electrical Sensors
  • Photothermal for solar steam evaporation
  • Noble metal bimetallic nanostructures with high-energy facets for photocatalysis application
  • Graphene oxides and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) for photothermal and photoelectrochemical application
  • Two-dimensional TMDs-based heterostructures for photodetectors and RH sensors
