Areas of Research

Nanoscale science enables the development of new materials and devices to improve energy efficiency, production, and storage.

New tools and diagnostics that can directly probe the electrical, structural, and optical behavior of biological materials. A goal is engineering hybrid biological/non-biological components and devices.

Nanophotonic and Nanoelectronic technologies promise to provide more compact and rapid information processing, as well as dramatically new means of accessing and controlling photons and charge.
