Not only kinetically controlled environments are the main focus of our research agenda but new deposition methods are being developed to overcome certain limitations of commonly used technologies (e.g. drop casting, spin coating, or inkjet printing). While common technologies do not allow to conduct chemical process on surfaces with control in time and space, we show that microfluidic technologies are key to unlock the integration of functional materials into appealing devices for myriad applications (e.g. sensors, catalysis, electronic devices, photovoltaic applications).
