Gopalan group in front of descendent's fountain

Welcome to Prof. Padma Gopalan's Research Group!

Group Projects

Our group research interests involve the molecular design, synthesis, and characterization of novel functional organic/polymeric materials directed towards electro-optic, photonic and biological applications. Efforts are targeted towards developing versatile synthetic strategies, which would enable the control of nano-functionality, structure and property. Our current research focus is in three major areas: new synthetic strategies towards organic photonic and electronic materials and interfaces, design of imaging layers, self-assembly block copolymers containing highly polar molecule and directed assembly of inorganic/organic moieties in block copolymer templates.
