Nanosciences and Materials

Designing, discovering and synthesizing novel materials through atomic, molecular and nanoscale controls is critical to manipulating and significantly improving materials chemical and physical properties. Nanosciences and Materials group faculty focus on developing innovative synthetic methods, advanced characterization strategies, multi-scale simulations and new device fabrications, to increase the understanding of materials structure-property relationships, uncover nanomaterials emergent phenomena and accelerate materials applications in various fields such as biomedicine, energy conversion, and storage, optics, electronics, and magnetism.
