"Polymer-based nanomaterials for energy harvesting and sensing" with Sohini Kar-Narayan, University of Cambridge
Date: Wed 4 Mar 2020, 15:00 - 16:00
Location: Lecture Theatre PP2, People's Palace, Mile End Campus
The Materials Research Institute welcomes Dr Sohini Kar-Narayan, Reader in Device & Energy Materials at the University of Cambridge. This talk is entitled 'Polymer-based nanomaterials for energy harvesting and sensing.'
Her research within the Device Materials Group aims at developing polymer-based nanomaterials for applications in energy harvesting and sensing. Dr Kar-Narayan's work involves piezoelectric, ferroelectric, magnetoelectric and thermoelectric nanostructures for harvesting and harnessing ambient waste energies. Her focus is on employing scalable and low-cost physical and chemical synthesis approaches to fabricate novel phases and functional nanostructures for incorporation into devices, with the aim of developing early-stage prototypes and eventual commercialisation of energy harvesting and self-powered sensing technologies.
