Our group’s research aims to tailor and understand novel optical, electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties of inorganic single-crystalline semiconductor materials configured with top-down fabricated, programmable nano- or microscale features in ways that can maximize the performance and cost-effectiveness in applications using these materials. We also pursue to explore unconventional pathways to heterogeneously integrate them as synergistic building blocks into device- and circuit-level implementation on various substrates of interest including a thin sheet of plastics for constructing flexible and stretchable systems. Specific technological areas of interest include high performance, low cost photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical water splitting systems based on printed assemblies of nanostructured silicon and III-V materials, and skin-mountable or implantable microlasers based on released vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) for biointegrated optoelectronic sensors and actuators.
