The electrospining technique is a well-known process for making continuous sub-micron to nano-size fibers in the nonwoven mat form. Benefiting amazing structural features such as high surface area to volume ratios and extraordinary interconnected porosity, in our group, nanofibrous membranes are under extensive investigation for liquid and gas filtrations.
Plasmonic metamaterials are artificial structures with exotic properties coming from their plasmon resonance. In our research group, we are dealing with the mentioned concept for developing an optoelectronic devices i.e. transparent conductor, solar absorber and photovoltaic.
The ability to control the fine structure of materials on the nanoscale provides an unprecedented opportunity to develop new and improved biologically active materials that can be implemented in several tasks ranging from filtration, plasmonic to cancer therapy.
Smart and Multifunctional Materials
Optical, electrical and sensoric devices based on nanomaterials and nanocomposites are a highly active area with a special interest for various applications. Ultimately, we aim to design functional materials with tunable and reversible properties.
