Research areas

Dr. Nolan’s interests lie in the modelling of materials for a range of device applications. For this research cluster the focus is on atomic level processing, that is atomic layer deposition, atomic layer epitaxy and molecular layer deposition, where his group has taken a leading position in the modelling of atomic layer deposition and epitaxy processes. More recently his group has started working on piezoelectric and multiferroic materials for new devices, as well as triboelectric generation.
