The main area Dr. Supasai`s research is “Nanostructured Materials”. In this experimental research Dr. Supasai`s group designs materials and structures useful for applications in optoelectronics and environment. A large effort of Dr. Supasai`s research focuses on photovoltaics, including organic-hybrid solar cell materials and device physics, inorganic materials like TiO2, ZnO, MoO3 etc., where the focus is to synthesize these materials via environmentally green chemical processes and to utilize them for the next generation of solar cell applications. Additionally, thin film research is mostly focused on the synthesis of the wide band gap materials via ion layer reaction (ILGAR), DC-RF sputtering, and resistive thermal evaporation and study of the structural, optical, and photo-induced charge generation and separation behaviors of these layers.
