Microfluidic technology has attracted attention of researchers from chemistry and biomedical sciences since its early development with the aim of limiting resource usage and waste reduction. By modifying the microfluidic devices and pulling in new technologies, the device could potentially transform future space exploration missions to be safer, more reliable and sustainable. Check out the microfluidic research carried out by Dr. Jitkai Chin (University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, UNMC) & Tengku Farah Wahida Ku Chik (National Space Agency Malaysia, ANGKASA).
Our research focuses on efficiency and performance of the materials and devices. By studying the charge transport, interfacial barriers, energy levels of organic semiconducting materials, exciton confinement, exciton dissociation, synthesis of various novel organic semiconducting materials, molecular modelling and correlation between molecular structure and device properties, we hope to achieve devices with very high performance. We fabricate various devices such as organic field effect transistors, organic phototransistors, organic light emitting diode, organic photovoltaic and smart organic electronics. We also actively patent our new findings.
