Paul E. Laibinis

Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Research:

Dr. Laibinis's work focuses on the assembly of systems whose performance is a direct result of surface effects.  These systems include chemical sensors, antifouling coatings, responsive interfaces, and nanoparticle dispersions.  A common element in these efforts is a molecular perspective on the structure of species at surfaces as a way to control interfacial behavior.  Systems range in complexity from single-atom coatings useful in chemical sensing to polymeric films employed to retard biomolecule adsorption to arrays of immobilized DNA molecules for genetic analyses or programmed multi-particle assembly.
