Research areas

Prof. Motta’s research interests span across several disciplines, from the growth of semiconductor nanostructures to the improvement of adhesion in bone implants. These topics are all connected to the central problem of controlling growth and adhesion to surfaces by nanostructuring. Present major research projects are polymer composites for organic electronic and photovoltaic applications and solar-powered nanosensors capable of detecting pollution and monitoring the environment in remote areas.
