Research Profile

Hugh Doyle

Biography

Dr. Hugh Doyle researched the development of Group IV nanomaterials for sensing and emissive device applications, with the objective of replacing the popular heavy-metal containing II-VI semiconductor systems with nontoxic alternatives with similar structural and photophysical quality. 

Links

Research Interests

Dr. Doyle's research interests lay in the exploration, understanding and exploitation of material properties and phenomena that exist only at the nanoscale, including: 

  • Precision chemical synthesis, functionalisation and characterisation of tailored metal and semiconductor nanocrystals,
  • Development of environmentally friendly synthetic and extraction methodologies for large-scale preparation, 
  • Incorporation of functionalised nanostructures into hybrid top-down/bottom-up optoelectronic and photonic devices, and
  • Assessment of the toxicity of nanoscale materials.
