We have been studied the surface modification of functional materials used for energy and medicine applications. For energy applications, we have been studied the transport and magnetic properties of Poly (3-alkylthiophene) for active materials of solar cell, Polyaniline for battery, graphene for cooling technology, and superconducting materials for zero resistivity cable transmission. For medicine applications, we have been studied nanomaterials of Fe3O4 and Polydimethylsiloxanes which will be used as drug delivery and substituting vitreous humor in vitreoretinal surgery, respectively.
