Dr. Sankara Rao Gollu is currently a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC) in the University of Manchester, United Kingdom.
He possess keen research interests are in fabrication and characterization of organic semiconductor devices such as Organic Field Effect Transistors, organic solar cells, photodetectors and memory devices. He worked with different commercial as well as newly synthesized materials such as nanocrystals, metal oxides, small molecules and polymers etc.
Sankar carried out his Post-doctoral research from School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore with special focus on memory devices for artificial synapse and neuromorphic device applications. Prior to this, Sankar completed his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India with Prof. Dipti Gupta and thesis entitled incorporating nanostructures in organic solar cells for enhancing the light absorption and charge transport. During his PhD studies he obtained ERASMUS scholarship for exchange studies at Uppsala University, Sweden where he carried out the density functional theory calculations for various nanostructures.
Currently, his research focuses on fabrication of organic field-effect-transistor arrays on large area substrates for industrial scale up as well as various sensing applications in support of the work of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large Area Electronics (CIMLAE) at OMIC, University of Manchester, UK.
