Electronic Materials and Sensors Research Group
The Electronic Materials and Sensors Group is a highly active research group led by IM Dharmadasa, who is the Professor of Electronic Materials and Devices, and currently focusing on Solar Energy conversion and applications.
The group is dedicated to the training of scientists and engineers in understanding of all aspects of Electronic Materials, Devices and Sensing Devices.
The activities in the group focus on
- growth of electronic materials using Electrodeposition, Chemical Bath deposition, Sol-gel, vacuum evaporation, etc
- material characterisation using a wide range of analytical techniques (Facilities Available)
- device design, fabrication, assessment, development and commercialisation of PV solar cells, LEDs, sensors, etc
- modelling of electronic device structures (lasers, graded bandgap solar cells)
- Thermo-electric materials and devices
- scaling up and commercialisation of successful research
- public understanding of science activities on renewable energy applications. "Solar Village" projects for sustainable development and reduction of poverty.
