Nano-assembled hybrid materials for smart technology

 

Our research interests span traditional topics in condensed matter physics along with emerging multi-disciplinary themes. We focus on the physics of novel materials and develop techniques and protocols to manipulate their properties for applications in energy storage and information processing devices.Our specific research interests include:

  • directed assembly of nanoparticles using active soft materials 
  • nanoplasmonics for renewable energy
  • nanomagnetism
