The Kempa Group is interested in synthesizing materials with unusual and exotic properties to help address extant challenges in environmental sustainability and in human health. We use our expertise in solid-state, physical, and materials chemistry to make solid-state structures and devices, and then use these to study un-answered questions in basic science and to define advances in solar cells, catalysts, thermoelectrics, optics, and biological imaging.
