James Rohan

Biography

James Rohan received his B.Sc. (1988) and M.Sc. in fuel cell research (1990) from UCC before completing his Ph.D. in 1993 at Southampton University, UK. He then spent 2 years in the United States as a Senior Scientist with EIC Laboratories as part of the USABC (United State Advanced Battery Consortium) developing lithium ion rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles.

Dr James Rohan established the Electrochemical Materials and Energy research group at Tyndall National Institute. He has been lead or co-PI on over 75 medium to large-scale research programmes. This research has attracted in excess of €10 million in research revenue to date.

His research interests include electrochemical materials processing and device fabrication for micro/nanoelectronics, energy storage and sensor applications. A recent focus has been on the templated deposition of nanomaterials for Energy and ICT applications. He is PI on an SFI investigators project, ‘Nanomaterials design and fabrication for Energy Storage’ (2013-2017) and a funded investigator in the SFI Connect Centre investigating energy storage for the smart things in the Internet of Things, www.connectcentre.ie

He has had research collaborations with Aerogen, Intel, HP, Harris Semiconductor, Bourns Electronics and Pfizer. He has also participated in a number of EU research programmes such as the FP6 integrated project, NAPOLYDE investigating nanoscale materials processing for energy applications and smart devices. He led the Tyndall advanced energy storage activity for the EU FP7 project, Nanofunction (www.nanofunction.eu). He was the coordinator and Principal Investigator of Collaborative Centre for Applied Nanotechnology (CCAN) (www.ccan.ie) project with Intel, Moses Lake Industries and Dublin City University as collaborators investigating nanoscale interconnect and barrier layer materials for future electronic devices.

He was the symposium organiser at the 225th Meeting of the Electrochemical Society (ECS) Orlando, May 2014 Electrodeposition for Micro- and Nano-Battery Materials. He also co-organised the 3rd and 4th International Symposia on the Electrodeposition of Nanoengineered Materials and Devices at the Electrochemical Society meetings in Vienna (2009) and Boston (2011). He was general chair for the European Materials Research Society workshop held in Warsaw, Poland, Sept 14th–19th 2008, “Current trends in nanostructured polymer and sol-gel thin films” and Guest Editor for a special issue of Applied Surface Science, Volume 256 Issue 3 (2009) based on contributions to that workshop. He has delivered invited presentations at the American Chemical Society, San Diego 2012, Electrochemical Society, Boston, 2011 and ESSDERC, Helsinki 2011. He has published more than 40 journal papers, 80+ conference presentations, 4 book chapters, 7 patents and has edited 2 conference transactions volumes and 1 special issue.

Research Interests

Electrochemical materials are widely used in advanced technology such as electronics, energy and sensor applications. We are investigating novel routes for micro to nanoscale metal, alloy and laminate materials that can complement typical thin film deposition techniques like physical vapour or atomic layer deposition. For ICT applications we are investigating seed and barrier layers, electrical interconnect and magnetic materials processing on planar and 3D substrates. Recent developments have included the activation of insulators and electroless materials processing for lamination of magnetic alloys on silicon substrates in power supply on-chip (PwrSoC) applications.  

Portable electronic devices rely on electrochemical energy sources. Next generation devices and those in the ‘Internet of things’ will require more advanced energy storage and hybrid energy harvesting solutions. We are developing new materials, combinations and routes to fabrication for enhanced energy storage microbatteries on-chip. The research focus is on materials and architecture simulations, advanced materials deposition and electrolyte optimisation for integration in the advanced fabrication solutions. 

Micro and nanoscale electrochemical sensors are also under development at Tyndall. Single or electrode arrays have been designed and fabricated that can be post-processed for optimised sensing applications. A key initial step is device simulation prior to fabrication to determine the optimum design. Recent developments have seen the use of nanoporous materials in microelectrode arrays for liquid and gas analyte sensing and, in collaboration with the Nanotechnology Group, nanointerdigitated arrays for generator collector-mode electrochemical sensors with enhanced sensitivity.
