Welcome to EMTFL website
Our group works in the area of printed electronics and thin film deposition. We work on both fundamental and applied research, related to electronic device fabrication. We focus mainly on vapor deposition, solution processing, and wet chemical routes for synthesis and fabrication and use a variety of characterization techniques for structural and functional property measurments.
