Nagpal Group is Turning Oxide Semiconductors into Metal-Like Conductors

September 17, 2014

Nanostructured oxide semiconductors are used in a variety of photovoltaic, light emitting diode (LED) and photoelectrochemical water-splitting devices. Unfortunately, while these semiconductors have attractive optical, electronic and catalytic properties, their poor charge conduction decreases device efficiency and makes them unsuitable for some applications. Conversely, metals are good conductors, yet their electronic and optical properties are not suitable in many devices.
