Title: Responsive Nanostructured Optical Materials
Location: 67-3111 Chemla Room


Our research interest is in the synthesis and functionalization of nanostructured materials—a class of new materials with at least one dimension at the nanometer scale.  These materials are sometimes referred to as ‘artificial atoms’ because their physical properties can be widely and easily tuned by adjusting their composition, size, shape, crystal structure, surface property, and configuration of assembly.  Our research therefore is focused on understanding the formation and properties of nanostructures, design and fabricate novel electronic and photonic devices and other functional materials based on these nanostructures. Specifically, our research topics include:
