Research Interests

My interest focus on fabrication of multifunctional thin films with atmospheric plasma deposition. It is an emerging thin film fabrication method which is scalable and can be operated without vacuum. Organsilicate thin film with high mechanical properties such as adhesion and Young’s modulus has been synthetized with dual precursor strategy. I am interested in the structure-property relationship for the deposition process especially the reaction mechanism of reaction under the afterglow of plasma.
