Research Description

Image Analysis for Surface Area Coverage
As nanoparticle coatings become more and more prevalent for applications in solar cells, photovoltaics, and other optoelectronics, it is necessary in relevant research to find the surface area coverage of the nanoparticles in the coating. As of now, there isn't a true tested method to analyze the surface area coverage. However using software such as Image J and MATLAB, we can possibly develop a method to efficiently analyze nanoparticles on the surface of these coatings.
