Nanocrystal Synthesis

To control the composition, shape, and material properties of nanostructures, we utilize biomimetic and chemical technologies that dictate specific faceted growth, creating various and complex nanoparticle shapes and heterostructures.

Nanoscale Phase Transformation Mechanics

In order to probe the underlying principles that govern the way nanocrystals are synthesized, and then further manipulated, we use our expertise in chemistry, physics, thermodynamics and diffusion to find a greater understanding of how these nanostructures are formed, and how we can manipulate them with greater control and more advantageous properties.

Energy Enabled Nanomaterials

Nanotechnology has become an indispensable element of material engineering for energy related applications, and in particular catalysis. Efficient and effective energy harvesting and storage greatly benefit from advantages of controlling materials at the nanoscale.

Functional Nanoelectronics

Semiconductor electronics and photonics have been the key driving force of the information technology revolution, but are facing substantial challenge for future growth. We are using synthetic chemistry to produce a wide variety of low-dimensional nanostructures, and further assembling them into functional electronic and photonic systems.
