Research specialization
Nanophotonics and materials for solar energy and biosensing applications.

Our research focuses on the materials and physical chemistry of nanostructures with potential applications ranging from solar energy conversion to bio-sensing. In particular, we are interested in synthesizing and assembling nanomaterials into 3D and 2D structures via a combination of bottom-up approach and top-down lithographic technique to derive novel optical, electrical, and chemical properties. We employ a wide range of characterization methods and various optical spectroscopies to elucidate the interplay between material properties and functions.
