Biological Templating of Photovoltaic Devices

As a joint postdoctoral research between the Hammond and Belcher labs, I am investigating methods of self-assembling M13 bacteriophage into ordered arrays and using these arrays as templates for semiconductor devices. Such arrays may have unique applications in photovoltaics and could form the basis of novel schemes for the complete self-assembly of functional electronic devices.
