Research Interest

My research interest focuses on developing novel thin-film materials of tailored microstructure from stable colloidal suspensions of nanoparticles. Nanostructured materials prepared from nanoparticles have been shown to exhibit properties that are dramatically different from those of bulk phases. Such materials have numerous potential applications in areas such as microelectronics, optics and energy storage devices. Our recent studies have shown that nanoparticulate MnOx snd NiOx thin films exhibit large charge-storage capacity or capacitance, and therefore promising novel electrode materials for the fabrication of thin-film energy-storage devices such as supercapacitors and rechargeable batteries.
