Ahmadi Research Laboratory Overview

Advancing Hybrid Materials by an Automated Discovery Innovation

We are a functional materials group from the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the University of Tennessee – Knoxville. Our laboratory and offices are located at the Institute of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing (IAMM). We also collaborate and work closely with scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Charles University of Prague, and other Research teams from UTK’s College of Engineering.

Our current work consists of:

  1. The use of chemical robotics driven combinatorial library for the discovery of new materials for different optoelectronic applications
  2. The characterization of ionic and electronic transport properties of hybrid organic-inorganic Perovskites
  3. The synthesis and development of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites for high radiation energy sensors

We are especially thankful for the financial support that was dedicated to Ahmadi-lab’s research endeavors from the National Science Foundation, Department of Homeland┬áSecurity, and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
