"Extreme performance through new materials and device architectures"
- Atoms-to-Systems Lab
The Atoms-to-Systems Lab conducts research in electronic nanomaterials, with a strong focus on flexible device applications. We work at the intersection of materials science and electronic engineering. The principle investigator of the lab is Dr. Derek Ho. Specific research areas include:
The Lab currently studies new ways to engineering novel materials (liquid metals, iono/hydrogels, polymers, and MXene). A common theme of our projects is the importance of soft chemistry, electrochemistry, thin films, interfacial phenomena, surface science and electronic device fabrication. Our approach is to (i) develop unconventional approaches to synthesize, assemble, characterize new materials so that they can be harnessed meaningfully, and most importantly, (ii) design, fabricate, and demonstrate new electronic devices in practical applications, such as medical/wearable electronics, physical and chemical sensing, as well as energy conversion and storage.
