Research focus

Sylvain G. Cloutier and his collaborators have already made significant progress in the development of lower-cost and better optoelectronic materials through nanoscale engineering

They have also shown that these materials can be used in real-life applications to achieve better performance-to-cost ratios. Along the way, they have also developed new fabrication and characterization tools to study optoelectronic materials.

Their research focus: 

Controlled nano-fabrication

  • Better-controlled synthetic routes
  • Large-scale top-down and bottom-up fabrication at low cost

Characterization of structural and optoelectronic properties

  • Development of more precise tools
  • Contact-free 3D micro-spectroscopy techniques
  • In operando analysis

Device integration

  • Light-emitting diodes (LEDs)
  • Photovoltaic devices / solar cells
  • Sensors
