Research Interests

Ilie's research centres on hybrid nano-materials and their applications. This includes systems of inorganic nanowires encapsulated inside nanotubes; new functionalities arising from spatial confinement of the nanowire will lead to applications in nano-electronics, spintronics and electrochemistry. Her distinctive experimental approach combines the application of several techniques (SPM, electronic transport, Raman, TEM) to the same discrete nanostructure.  A highlight is the demonstration of a new technique which allows the integration of individual “fragile” biological/molecular nanostructures into devices for the first time. New collaborations with Bath Chemistry aim to couple nanotubes with molecular systems to develop spatially-controlled nanotube-molecular architectures.
