When an inorganic material is confined to the nanoscale in the form of nanocrystals, new and size-dependent properties often emerge. These properties can be used in new technologies with the potential to address critical social needs such as better tools for disease diagnosis and treatment and platforms for sustainable energy. Central to these new technologies is the ability to synthesize high-quality nanomaterials, where the composition, size, shape, and architecture of the nanocrystals are precisely controlled. Students will work to develop new means of nanomaterial synthesis, characterize their structural properties, and study the properties of prepared materials for applications in catalysis, energy science, and chemical sensing.
