Welcome to the Molecular Nanotechnology Lab, a research group devoted to the synthesis, characterization and application of advanced nanomaterials.
We work at the crossroads of materials chemistry, nanotechnology and chemical engineering to produce novel materials for a wide range of applications, from catalysis to energy production and storage.
Researchers are investigating the manipulation of light in plasmonic nanostructures using the dephasing and population dynamics of electron-hole-pairs in metal coated, core-shell semiconductor nanowires. The[…]
Researchers designed a novel device based on graphene and metal nanoparticles that shows greatly enhanced response to light and is colour sensitive. This may foster[…]
Lithium-ion batteries unleash electricity as electrochemical reactions spread through active materials. Manipulating this complex process and driving the reactions into the energy-rich heart of each[…]
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has requested $7 million in funding for a new center focused on nanotechnology in consumer products.
There has been much confusion and misinformation in recent weeks about our Consumer Products Inventory (CPI). Much of this confusion was sparked by a recent[…]
