My previous works on the exploratory synthesis of metal chalcogenides/halides provided the top nonlinear optical and light emitting materials capable of operating in the IR region. I am currently developing low-cost, all-solid-state solar cell systems involving inorganic semiconductors. I am also working on the synthesis of new materials for renewable energy applications.
