Interplay of structural & electronic properties in organic electronics

Huang organic electronics

Honours project: Develop a more predictive approach to controlling organic electronic device performance, in particular by exploiting molecular anisotropy to manipulate the structure of organic semiconductor interfaces.

Molecular effects in membrane fluid transport

Huang hydrodynamics

Honours project: Develop a general theoretical understanding of the fluid and membrane parameters that control membrane transport processes and to investigate deviations from continuum hydrodynamics predictions due to molecular effects, which could potentially be harnessed to optimise these processes.

Catalytic activity of metal clusters on surfaces

Figure shows the HR-TEM image of the Au9 cluster deposited on a titania nanosheet. Scale bar is 0.5 nm

Honours project: Develop techniques to determine the geometric and electronic structure of size-specific clusters (e.g. Au9) deposited onto semiconductors surfaces (e.g. TiO2) and test their performance for photocatalytic water-spitting (H2 production) and CO2 reduction (hydrocarbon formation).
