Our group studies nanoscale heat transport and electrothermal energy conversion in order to improve electronic and optoelectronic devices. We have also developed novel lock-in imaging techniques to obtain thermal maps with sub diffraction-limit spatial resolution and 800ps time resolution. We are applying similar methods to enable real-time roll-to-roll process monitoring for smart film manufacturing. We are working with two dozen faculty from colleges of Engineering, Science, Agriculture, Polytechnic and Pharmacy to manufacture low-cost internet of thing (IoT) devices and their distributed network. As a part of the Wabash Heartland Innovation Network, we are also developing a community IoT testbed as a living laboratory to introduce digital technology and data analytics.
