Nano-porous structures: sensors, electro-optic devices, super-capacitors


We have developed innovative technologies employing nano-porous materials for varied sensing, optical, and electronic applications. In particular: a technology for deposition of nano-structured Au films utilizing Au-thiocyanate has been shown to produce transparent electrodes, conductive nanowire assemblies, and physiological pressure sensors. Another research direction employs graphene-oxide (GO) and GO/gold constructs for gas sensing applications and super-capacitor designs
