Innovation of unprecedented materials and devices for next-generation products through nanomanufacturing

Our research focuses on innovating nanotechnologies through the design, manufacturing, and integration of functional materials with controlled compositions and architectures across multiple length scales. We carry out groundbreaking trans-disciplinary research to generate hierarchical materials and structures with applications in ubiquitous sensors, wearable devices, nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, quantum electronics, energy, catalysis, etc.

Leveraging these materials and tools, we work with scientists and engineers with diverse backgrounds to explore the fundamental scientific issues related to the deterministic manufacturing and integration of emerging nanomaterials and correlating their unique processing advantages with structural properties as well as with their capability for the targeted applications via a combined experimental and computational approach.
