Our research focuses on using materials to create electrical and mechanical devices with unique and exceptional characteristics. Materials include carbon nanotubes, electronically conducting polymers and protein complexes, which are used to create artificial muscle, supercapacitors, printable transistors and solar cells. Students are involved in a number of exciting projects involving aspects of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science and electrochemistry.
Our work focuses on everything from supercapacitors to research and development into creating cost-effective, flexible electronic circuits for electronic paper, flexible displays, and printed radio frequency identification tags. Students in the molecular mechatronics group gain hands-on experience in an exciting area of engineering that greatly impacts our everyday lives.
