Projects Synthesis Materials Fabrication Devices Characterization Theory
This year we have nearly 30 projects covering a wide range of nanoscience, including facile synthesis of organic and inorganic nanowires and nanostructures, novel fabrication routes, building of functional bioarchitectures, nanostructured devices and nanowire applications. Please browse the menu (hover on a group and click on the project of choice) to view brief overviews of our projects.
Biomolecule-based Nanowire
We attempt to fabricate biomolecule-based 1D nanowires via biomolecular self-assembly. We aim to synthesize novel conductive and diameter-controlled bio-nanowires by decorating or incorportating them with transition metals and using size controlled templates to realize novel nanoscale circuitry for futuristic devices.
