Transistors and Sensors

A transistor is an semiconductor-based device used to switch or amplify an electronic signal. Transistors are used in almost all electronic devices. Making transistors out of flexible materials, such as semiconducting polymers, allows them to be used in flexible applications. Sensors are also used in many different applications. Making these devices out of lightweight, flexible materials (such as polymers) allows them to be used in a wider variety of applications, including bio-compatible electronics and wearable electronics. 

Spintronics and Magnetism

Spin transport electronics is the study of the intrinsic spin of the electron and its associated magnetic moment in solid-state materials. 

Molecular magnets are an exciting new class of materials that can display ferromagnetic and more complex magnetic properties. The magnetic properties can be controlled by changing the chemical structure of the molecule.
