Making Precious Metals More Precious
Transforming Light by Nanostructured Materials
Making Ordinary Materials Extraordinary
Our research focuses on controlling materials at the 100-nanometer scale and investigating their size and shape-dependent properties. We have developed massively parallel, multi-scale patterning tools to generate hierarchical, anisotropic, and 3D hard and soft materials with applications in imaging, sensing, wetting, and cancer therapeutics.
Patterning three-dimensional (3D) structure into two-dimensional (2D) graphene is important for applications in flexible electrodes, stretchable electronics and energy storage devices. We have demonstrated a conformal wrinkling process that can generate hierarchical...read more
