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.
Nanoparticle shape plays an important role in targeted drug delivery. Investigations of how differences in morphology affect nanoparticle-cell interactions at the single-particle level—especially internalization and cellular trafficking—are critical yet limited. Using...
