Project Focus: The project aims to develop new self-powered photodetectors and sensors using a photoelectrochemical based system. These devices will be designed to efficiently sense broadband or targeted infrared (IR) light by utilizing either novel single materials or a combination of 2D materials. The research will also investigate the mechanism behind the self-power capability of these devices, seeking to enhance the performance of photodetectors and sensors through the formation of regions with high and low tensile strain in wrinkled few-layer 2D material structures, which will enhance exciton separation. Furthermore, the project will place special focus on understanding exciton movement and optoelectronic properties of the photodetector. The successful implementation of these novel devices will be overseen by Dr. Pradip Kumar Roy, with the added benefit of close collaboration with Prof. Dorota A. Pawlak and The Functional Materials Technology group.
The candidate undertaking this research will have the opportunity to work closely with experts in the field and contribute to advancements in self-powered photodetectors and sensors with significant applications in various areas.
