Bottom-up surface patterning technique - Anodic alumina templating, self-assembly of copolymers, nanoparticles and polyelectrolyte membranes.
Nanoscale device design and system integration - Nanoplasmonics, superlense and lab-on-chip devices
Applications: New chemical-free and unique functional surfaces for electronics, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, storage media, chemical and biomedical devices.
Plasmonics and Nanoheterostructures Laboratory Nanoplasmonics enables the mediation of light between the macro-world and nanostructures. Colloidal Semiconductor Nanoheterostructures (CSN) are nanostructures capable of processing light due to its material properties and quantum size confinement. This laboratory explores the integration of nanoplasmonics with CSNs to produce novel, and higher-performance devices than currently available.
