Areas of Concentration
Edwards' research group is interested in oxides for electronic, optical, energy, and environmental applications. Projects range from basic research to process development. Basic science projects focus on designing (and discovering) new oxides and investigating how crystal structure and defect chemistry affect their electrical, optical, and catalytic properties. Applied projects involve developing thick-film and solution-based thin-film processes for making devices.
