Research Information

Our research efforts are focused on interdisciplinary nanoscience, with the convergence of multiple disciplines: engineering, material science, chemistry, physics, and biomedicine. The foundation of our research group is based on nanophotonics and plasmonics. By combining colloidal synthesis and nanofabrication, we design plasmonic nanostructures with unique optical characteristics driven by their geometry, dimensions, and composition. We integrate the plasmonic nanostructures with semiconductors, polymers, and biomolecules to engineer functional architectures which can be ultimately employed to solve important global challenges – Energy and Sustainability, and Human Health.

Based on this diverse theme, our group is currently exploring three areas of research:

I. Solar Energy Conversion

II. Nanomedicine and Biosensing

III. Active Plasmonic/Photonic Metamaterials
