Welcome to the Functional Nanomaterials Lab (FuNL).

FuNL is headed by Prof. Osman Bakr of the Materials Science & Engineering Program at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).​

At FuNL, we are dedicated to studying the physics and chemistry of hybrid materials.

We are interested in the synthesis, characterization, and assembly of organic-inorganic hybrid materials (such as nanoparticles and perovskites) of novel optical, electronic and magnetic properties that will become the future building-blocks for solar cells, photonic and optoelectronic devices.​​
