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.
We achieved mechanical control of the lasing color by exploiting a lasing cavity based on periodic arrays of nanoparticles in a stretchable, polymer matrix. This materials system could achieve reversibly tunable lasing as well as superior sensitivity to applied...read more
