Research

We are an experimental physics group in the Department of Physics at Oregon State University. We investigate applied physics questions related to nanoscale systems such as carbon nanotubes and graphene. The broader impact of our work ranges from solar energy harvesting to medical diagnostics. ON-GOING PROJECTS IN 2018 Carrier multiplication for photovoltaics: Photocurrent generation in carbon nanotube pn junctions Quantum phases in 1d systems: Fundamental studies of nominally-metallic carbon nanotubes Graphene biosensors: Flexible graphene transistors for neural recording Graphene supercapacitors: the electric double layer at the interface between graphene and various electrolytes
