I intend to travel to the University of Oxford and the lab of Dr. Moritz Riede and build a second generation version of the
Large Area Nanoparticle Deposition System (LANDS) that I have designed and built during my PhD studies at Stanford
University in the USA. This will be a flexible, particle-agnostic system that will be capable of depositing uniform films of
nano- and micro-particles from solution. It is designed to emphasize scalability, high throughput and large area film
uniformity and will be compatible with low-temperature flexible plastic and foil substrates and the devices built on them.
Once complete, I will initially use the LANDS to deposit nanostructured thin films of metal nanowires to form transparent
conductive electrodes for photovoltaic applications. I will continue to develop and explore the use of such metal nanowire
films as replacements for industry standard transparent conductive oxides such as indium tin oxide (ITO) and fluorine doped
tin oxide (FTO) especially in flexible devices.
