Research Description

Professor Efstathiadis' research is focused on the following areas:

Thin-film solar cells
CIGS
This project includes the development of chemical (using CIGS nanoparticles) and sputter (bi-layer, co-sputtering) deposition processes for the absorber layer, low-cost methods for selenization and sulfurization, and studies of flexible substrates, barrier, and alternative to CdS buffer layers. The project also involves photovoltaic (PV) device fabrication and testing.

a-Si and nc-Si
This project is focused on process development for thin-film a-Si and p-Si by evaporation and high frequency Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) and anti-reflection and passivation coatings, front contact metallization for PV devices.

Li-ion batteries
In a Li-ion battery a solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) is formed on a graphitic anode surface during the first electrochemical cycle. In this project several formation methods in full Li-ion cells are investigated to study their impact on Li distribution at the anode interface. To evaluate the impact of formation both on performance and at a physical level, full cells were assembled, formed and cycled at various rates then disassembled and the electrodes were measured using the non-destructive Li nuclear reaction analysis (Li-NRA) measurements. Probing the immobile Li as a consequence of formation procedure and cycling can provide insight into charge transfer and cycle life limitations.

Li-ion Batteries - Solid Electrolytes
This project is focused on the development by RF-magnetron sputtering and characterization of different classes of solid lithium-ionic conductors, fabrication of all-solid state microbatteries using photo lithography, and electrochemical evaluation testing. One promising compound is lithium aluminum titanium phosphate (LATP), a NASICON-like solid electrolyte whose chemical compound follows the structure Li1+xAlxTi2-x(PO4)3.

Sensors - Anti-reflective coatings
Infrared sensors are being developed for a variety of defense and commercial systems applications. Oblique-angle deposition has been used to tailor the refractive index of porous, nanostructured SiO2 materials, and to build high-performance step-graded refractive index structures on glass and other relevant substrates. Step-grade designs enable the formation of AR structures that combine broadband and omnidirectional characteristics. In this work, we will develop on large areas the oblique angle deposition process of nanostructured coating technology for IR sensing applications and report results from step-graded antireflection coatings on silicon substrates

Solid-State air filter for face masks
The aim of this project is to fabricate using photolithography and test an all solid electrostatic air filter that can be integrated with commercially available respirators and face masks for personnel protection from viruses including COVID19. The filtration device is mechanically robust, reusable for hundreds or thousands of times after simple cleaning, and kills all biological agents irrespective of size.

Thin film deposition and characterization
Low pressure thermal and plasma enhanced chemical vapor film depositions of silicon and carbon based alloys for hard coating and antireflective coatings for IR-windows.

Teaching

Dr. Efstathiadis has developed and teaching undergraduate lecture courses, an undergraduate laboratory course, a graduate lecture course and a graduate/undergraduate seminar course. He is also teaching several independent study courses such as NNSE 397 to undergraduate students and NNSE 197 to non-matriculated high school students.

Dr. Efstathiadis is teaching for many years to junior and senior students taking capstone project courses, on one-to-one basis or small groups of students, the science and engineering principles of renewable energy technologies. He has also advised and supervised them in getting hand-on experience and performing experiments in his laboratory as well as presenting their data and findings on Capstone Day.

Dr. Efstathiadis developed teaches at “The Energy Storage Technology Workforce Training Program”. This is a comprehensive approach within SUNY Polytechnic Institute to increase the number of students at SUNY Poly and also increase the number of engineers, scientists, and technicians with technical skills on energy storage and clean energy. The goal of the program is to provide the necessary technical education and to inspire students to seek careers in the clean energy industry. As part of this program, Dr. Efstathiadis is developing this semester novel, team-based research projects course to introduce the student to professional-level research and development on Li-ion batteries and beyond.
