Research summary

With recent developments in solution processed semiconductors, it has been possible to reach levels of performance that was un-imaginable earlier. This shows that in spite of the relatively strong residual disorder these materials are starting to approach mobility commonly seen in inorganic materials. On the other hand, despite the conventional knowledge that crystalline materials have low degree of disorder, recently synthesized amorphous materials have demonstrated much larger mobility with relatively low degree of disorder. At present we do not completely understand the transport in these materials. My research is directed towards understanding the electronic structure and the nature of disorder in these materials and come up with a figure of merit parameter to characterize disorder in these classes of materials.

In addition, I have also started working on new class of materials like hybrid perovskites and topological insulators to utilize them in a transistor geometry both for understanding the underlying transport physics and also design novel flexible logic circuits.
