Our work
The goal of our research is to synthesize and fabricate nanostructure materials, understand the fundamentals of nanoscale assembly, and explore their unique optical, chemical, mechanical, and electrical properties.  By using various state-of-the-art microscopic techniques, we will investigate structure-property relationship at the nanometer scale.  In particular, we are interested in multifunctional nanomaterials for applications in sensors, photovoltaic devices, and nanoelectronics.
