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.
Using electrohydrodynamic lithography (EHL), 50 nm pattern replication with inorganic materials is possible using a master pattern prepared by Nanoimprint lithography (NIL). We optimize the heat treatment protocol to obtain high quality functional metal oxide nanostructures utilizing a low temperature laser annealing system. Our technique is very flexible and easily scalable thus making it suitable for transferring complicated metal oxide nanostructures to various substrates including flexible substrates.
