We do rational design of electronic materials “from the ground up” using a combination of experiments and theory.
The Hutchison research group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh develops new materials, as well as functional microscale and nanoscale devices. We focus on building electronic materials from molecular subunits, both organic and inorganic, using a variety of techniques to rationally design the desired properties. This encompasses chemical synthesis, characterization (both physical and chemical), combined with theoretical modeling and simulation.
