Research interests

The research in our laboratory is focused on understanding and controlling surface and interfacial materials chemistry and applying this knowledge to a range of problems in semiconductor processing, nanotechnology, and sustainable energy. The role of interfaces becomes increasingly important as system dimensions are scaled downward. For example, most electronic and optoelectronic devices are undergoing rapid scaling, with lengths moving into the nanometer range and the surface to volume ratio becoming very large. The function of many next-generation electronic and nanoscale devices will therefore depend critically on the ability to control and modify the properties of their interfaces. One of the examples are Graphene see below


For example Graphene and fucntionalised graphene represent a promising photovoltaic technology and supercapactior. The original design includes a monolayer of graphene and functionalized graphene surfaces adsorbed on a high-porosity conducting transparent electrode (the electron transporter) surrounded by an iodine electrolyte solution (the hole conductor).


(Figure shows the representation of low cost flexible solar cells)

Functionlaised graphene surfaces/ dopant predicted to give half of the sheet resistance.  The flexible organic solar cells, which will fabricated on a plastic or Zenor substrate, retained a power conversion efficiency of 2.5–2.6%, regardless of the bending conditions, even up to a bending radius of 5.2 mm. The resultant systems are characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic force microscopy (AFM), UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, and synchrotron methods, and by solar cell testing techniques including photoluminescence quenching and current-voltage measurements.

Graphene Layers Copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) is one of the most promising absorber technologies for thin film photovoltaics, and variations on CIGS solar cells are currently being manufactured by several solar cell companies. Sunlight is absorbed in the CIGS layer, and the charge is extracted and transported through the buffer layer before being collected by the electrodes. The most promising buffer layer is a very thin layer of cadmium sulfide deposited via chemical bath deposition; however, due to health concerns involved with cadmium, other materials are being studied for buffer layers, and plasma enchanced chemical vapour depositon is one most promising alternatives for depositing these thin layers of n-type semiconductors. We are currently looking at new materials and methods for the buffer layer deposition in CIGS photovoltaics via PECVD and understanding the surface and interface effects through various spectroscopic techniques…

Self-cleaning coatings for targeting solar energy and water supply mismatch in India and Brazil
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Dec 202130 Nov 2025Royal Academy of Engineering

Photovoltaic (PV) panels are the most common means to harvest solar energy – the most abundant renewable energy source - and convert it to electricity. Due to dust accumulation, PV cell efficiency can drop by about 40% within a year in a dusty climate. Cleaning PV panels by traditional approaches damages the cell surfaces and consumes large quantities of water – this exacerbates the water scarcity issues, in particular in water starved regions in western India and Sub-Saharan Africa, which are attractive locations for solar energy. In fact this mismatch of solar and water supply is also prevalent in Brazil and a number of other low and middle income countries (LMICs). In solar thermal systems, the light concentrating mirrors suffer similarly. Therefore, there is an urgent need for smart cleaning that avoids surface damage and the water loss – the solution of this problem clearly has direct energy and environmental benefits. We wish to use ‘self-cleaning’ superhydrophobic and transparent coatings as the solution. If designed properly, droplets on can roll-off such coatings at minor tilting (

Smart innovative system for recycling wastewater and creating closed loops in textile manufacturing industrial processes

Lead01 Dec 202030 Nov 2023EC (European Commission): FP (inc. Horizon Europe, H2020, ERC)

Waste2Fresh will bring to bear a ground-breaking innovative system that will for the first time recycle water and create closed loops in textile manufacturing industrial processes. By combining a novel catalytic decolouration technology (Nanofique) with validated innovative and established technologies for degradation of organics and disinfection (photocatalytic process unit including energy generation/storag), removal of heavy metal ion (WATERNOMET CD/PAAs-based process unit), water desalination/polishing (PCI Group system), wastewater harvesting (CSDI) and real-time monitoring and control, Waste2Fresh will deliver a cost-effective (€0.9/m3 of reusable water compared to €2.59/m3 for nearest state-of-the-art) and environmentally benign integrated system that increases resource and water efficiency in textile manufacturing by 30% compared to the current state-of-the-art. The broad range of water pollutants (organics, metals, salts) addressed by the Waste2Fresh system allows it to be applicable for closed-loop wastewater recycling in other energy-intensive industries such as brewing and distilling, power, petrochemicals, leather tanning and pulp & paper; creating a multiplier effect on the transformative impact that the solution will have to EU/global industry and society in terms of resource efficiency and environmental sustainability. Waste2Fresh overall concept is ambitious for addressing scarcity of fresh water and remediation of pollution. Energy-intensive industries such as the textile manufacturing industry are major users of fresh water (e.g. for processing, washing, diluting, heating, cooling, etc) which is a scarce resource. Current state-of-the-art textile wastewater treatment methods (figures 1.4a and 1.4b) are complex, too costly and environmentally unsustainable (e.g. chemical use). The lack of cost-efficient closed loop wastewater recycling technology in such industries exacerbates the problem of water resource scarcity and creates environmental pollution as the costs involved deters most manufacturers from treating wastewater (especially in developing countries like India), leading to industrial wastewater ending up in rivers and oceans. To reduce the use of fresh water and improve water availability in relevant EU water catchment areas as outlined in the Water Framework Directive, breakthrough innovations are needed to recycle water and create closed loops in industrial processes are needed. Wast2Fresh innovatively meets this need.

Dyes, natural or synthetic, are common pollutants in industrial wastewaters from textile, food and cosmetics manufacturing, among others. Color removal from wastewaters can be achieved by physical, chemical, biological methods or their combination. Research groups, in Colombia and UK, have developed nanomaterials for removal of dyes from industrial wastewaters. Colombia plays a major role in Palm Oil production worldwide. It is well known that Palm Oil production uses large amount of fresh water that becomes polluted with dyes. Conventional wastewater treatment methodologies are not suitable to remove these compounds from POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent). La Alianza del Humea, a Colombian company, produces 7.2 cubic meters of dye contaminated water per day. With this project, we seek a partnership with Open University, Nanofique Ltd and La Alianza del Humea to provide means of removing color from Palm Oil industrial wastewater in Colombia by using nano biocomposites and nanomaterials. We will deliver a sound solution to the Palm Oil industry in Colombia by tuning and improving the stability or nanoparticle coatings on hard cellulosic fibers. We have previously demonstrated that nanocomposites of transition metal nanoparticles synthesized on the surface of hard fibers can efficiently remove dyes from contaminated waters, however, these materials lack stability which affects their reusability. We aim to produce a new generation of nano structured composites with improved performance.

The goal of the project is to develop an eco-friendly, inexpensive commercial process to recycle lithium ion batteries (LIBs). The prime objective is not only to recover Aluminum and Copper current collectors of LIBs but also develop chemical processes to recover transition metals such as (Ni, Co, Mn, Ti etc.) used in cathodes for LIBs. Besides, the other important objective is to synthesize value added products such as Lithium carbonate and N-butyl lithium for Pharmaceutical industry and Lithium perfluorooctane sulfonate as a pesticide for agriculture industry from the Li and electrolyte used in LIBs. Hydrometallurgy and Chemical recycling process will be developed to recycle LIBs. Chemical process includes pretreatment which consists of leaching of electrodes, extraction of metals from leach mixtures. Efforts will be directed to produce graphene oxide from graphite electrodes. Our approaches will reduce COx emissions, avoid ground water contamination, and other toxic contaminants.

The goal of the project is to develop an environment friendly, low cost commercial process to recycle the Li-ion Batteries. The prime objective is not only to recycle Al and Cu current collectors of LIBs but also develop a chemical process to recover Metals such as (Li, Ni, Co, Fe, Ti and Mn) from spent cathodes and anodes and polymers from separators. Hydrometallurgy recycling process is proposed here which mainly comprises discharging and dismantling, pretreatment leaching of cathode and anode active materials, and extraction of metals from leach mixtures. Besides we may explore pyrometallurgy to leach cathode and anode materials. As discussed recycling LIBs will benefit a long-term environmental impact. This will help to avoid ground water contamination, reduce COx emissions, and also from toxic HF gas, and polyethylenes.

Integrated Treatment System for Textile Industry Wastewater
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Apr 201714 May 2020Royal Academy of Engineering

As water becomes a limiting resource in densely populated regions of the world, effective treatment of industrial wastewater not only becomes necessary for safe recycling of the resource but also is essential for the survival of the industry. The textile industry consumes about 140 L of water / kg of finished product, and dying is one of the most polluting of the chain of activities it conducts. The current treatment methods for textile wastewater involve sedimentation, biological treatment and various tertiary treatments like reverse osmosis, ultra-filtration or nano-filtration to remove the various contaminants and making water safe for reuse or disposal into water bodies. These processes consequently generate voluminous sludge for disposal and hazardous membrane rejects. To overcome these expensive processes and hazardous waste generation we have explored the possibility of employing a plant-microbe system (Mohanapriya et al., under review). The salient advantage of this process is its low power requirement and elimination of toxic byproducts from breakdown of aromatic compounds present in textile mill effluents. The proposed project will address the following questions to develop a comprehensive solution to the textile mill wastewater treatment: a. can we use a photocatalytic process to quickly decolorize azodyes in high concentration in waste streams? b. can we develop an integrated system to detoxify and depollute the wastewater? c. what are the mechanistic basis for such a treatment process? d. how do we translate these findings for the benefit of the industry? The collaborators bring in their unique expertise for solving these problems. The beneficiaries will be the textile processing industries, the participating academic institutions for the range of experiences on offer for their faculty and students, and the industrial partner to reach out to and expand its customer base with new and effective solutions.

Over the last few decades, the applications of photovoltaic systems have grown rapidly and they are on their way to become a major energy source for India and Europe. Over the past few years the installed capacity increased 200 to 400% in Asia and Europe.. The year 2016 was another one for the books for solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, as it has experienced remarkable growth over the past decade and is on the way to becoming a mature and mainstream source of electricity. For the second year in a row, in 2017 PVs were the top new source of electricity generation in the European Union. The capacity of the systems installed during this year is sufficient to cover the annual power supply needs of over 40 million European and Asian households. Each year these PV installations save more than 36 million tons of CO2. It is thus argued that reducing the EU's and Asias current rate of fossil-fuel combustion can be assisted greatly by introducing coherent, comprehensive and coordinated energy education policies. PVs continue to prove their ability to compete in the energy sector as a mainstream power generation source. However, even if the most pessimistic scenario is taken into account, PVs will continue to increase their share of the energy mix in Europe and around the world, becoming a reliable source of clean, safe and ceaseless renewable energy for all. It has been suggested that education on solar systems must be one of the priorities of the energy policy, to promote the solar energy applications for sustainable development. It is impossible to successfully promote solar systems without appropriately educated people who will be involved in their design, sizing, and installation. The main part of a PV system is the PV panel itself, as it is the part responsible for the conversion of solar energy to electricity. Thus, the theory of PV panels has been included in the curriculum of most educational institutes with an engineering course. However, it is well known how important the role of hands-on experience is in engineering education and hence, the theoretical study should be combined with experimentation in order for the students to be able to apply the theory of a specific device in actual conditions. Nowadays, the traditional approach of educational sessions in real laboratories is changing, with the virtual and remote laboratories gaining ground. This is attributed to the rapid developments and adoption of computer, internet and control technologies. A remote laboratory offers the ability to perform an extensive set of educational experiments under real conditions through the internet and within a very short time. At the same time, the student can have a live view of the systems through a web camera, offering him/her a sense of personal presence in the place where the experiment takes place. This project suggests the development of an open access remote PV laboratory for educational purposes. The remote PV laboratory, which will consist of specialized PV equipment, sensors, monitoring and control hardware, will be installed outdoors at the facilities of the OU, and allowing the users from India to perform real-world tests and experiments with photovoltaic panels over the internet, in real time. The system should be accessible by everyone on the planet with an internet access . It also should be accompanied by appropriate educational material, for several target groups, such as students, postgraduates, professionals and educators, allowing it to be used by a broad variety of users directly. The design should also be modular, to be easy to modify and or upgrade.
