Research Statement

Our research covers material science and engineering on a broad scale, from single molecules to molecular assemblies, from angstroms to nanometers to micrometers. The central topics of basic science include the control and optimization of electron transfer, charge separation, charge transport, and long-range diffusion of electron-hole pairs. These topics remain in debate in the organic semiconductor community. Studying these properties helps improve the function and performance of organic materials and the devices they comprise, such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), transistors, lasers and sensor systems. The long-term goal of our research is to reveal the structure-property-function relationship of organic semiconductors when fabricated into nanostructures, which often demonstrate unique properties and unprecedented performance compared to the traditional bulk-phase materials. The uniqueness of our research lies in the flexibility of our materials, where the optoelectronic properties can be manipulated and optimized through "bottom-up" molecular design and engineering. Students involved are trained in various cross-disciplinary areas, including chemical synthesis, physical characterization, materials science, as well as nanoscale engineering and processing. 

The outcomes of our research bring significant impact to the fields of nanomaterials and optoelectronic device systems in various ways, ranging from novel molecular design and synthesis, to exquisite supramolecular assembly, to novel devices, and to advanced spectroscopic and microscopic characterization methods. The materials synthesized are uniquely multifunctional, combining the properties of strong fluorescence emission, self-waveguiding, 1D enhanced exciton migration and charge transport. This combination of properties enables a range of important technological applications that demand tightly coupled interaction between matter, light, and electrons. Our research program also helps break down the traditional science and engineering barriers by training a generation of students to think about and understand the broad spectrum of research activities that are important to the general field of nanotechnology. 

Beyond fundamental research, we also strive to explore the commercialization potential of the materials and techniques we develop, with the goal of achieving real applications in areas relevant to national security, renewable energy, and the environment. Such transformation of laboratory innovations into marketable products is a key element of USTAR's long-term strategy. One University of Utah spinoff company,Vaporosens Inc, was founded focusing on trace detection of explosives, toxic industry chemicals, drugs and other chemical threats.
