Nanotechnology

Research in nanotechnology is interdisciplinary and diverse, with applications in several fields including chemistry, medicine and microfabication. Our researchers are at the forefront of this new and exciting science, with many holding appointments with the prestigious National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT).

Some active projects include:

  • nanoparticle synthesis and derivatization
  • nanoscale structures for solar energy
  • self-assembly to build sub-50 nm features on silicon
  • asymmetric nanoparticle functionalization (Janus particles)
  • adaptive nanotubular architectures 
  • nanoparticle enhanced spectroscopy 
  • green nanomaterials
