Research Description: 

The Chabinyc Research Group is broadly focused on the study of functional thin film materials. Our group studies both organic and inorganic semiconducting materials using a combination of physical characterization methods to elucidate their electronic and structural properties. These thin film semiconductors can be deposited, or grown, on non-conducting substrates to form electronic devices such as transistors, solar cells, and thermoelectrics. Additionally, because these materials are printable they offer new opportunities for low-cost fabrication methods and new form factors for electronics.
