Jason Slinker’s Faculty Profile on Research Explorer
Electrochemical Devices: Optoelectronics and Biosensors
The interplay between ionic and electronic charges in soft materials can be controlled to yield unique electrical properties and novel device capabilities. My research interests span two areas: organic optoelectronic devices for energy efficiency and novel biosensors for disease diagnostics and laboratory assays. In both cases, electrochemical devices that exhibit both ionic and electronic conductivity will be employed. My research efforts will leverage a fundamental understanding of ionic materials and nanoscale patterning to implement devices with superior performance.
