The lab deals with Large-Area 3-D Nano-Patterning and Nanostructure Fabrication, Nanoscale Interfacial Phenomena, Multifunctional Superhydrophobic Surfaces, Microfluidic Self-Assembly of Nanomaterials, Nanofluidic Energy Harvesting, and Optofluidic Waveguides and Sensors.
The group is interested in studying the behavior of advanced material systems at the nanoscale. Particular material systems of interest include polymers and polymer nanocomposites, as well as thin film and piezoelectric materials of interest in MEMS applications.
The goal of the Nanotechnology Graduate Program is to create a vibrant interdisciplinary environment that provides stimulating and cross-fertilizing educational training in nanotechnology to contribute to the Institute's research excellence in related frontiers while preserving strong disciplinary fundamentals.
MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms is an ambitious interdisciplinary initiative that is looking beyond the end of the Digital Revolution to ask how a functional description of a system can be embodied in, and abstracted from, a physical form.
