The group conducts interdisciplinary research focused on functional oxides (thin films, nanowires, and nanoparticles) and their use in emerging electronics and energy harvesting applications. High-k oxides, ferroelectrics, thermoelectrics, and semiconducting oxides are of interest. they have active projects in use of these materials for micropower generation, energy storage, nanodevices, and large-area flexible electronics.
This lab strives to integrate advanced nanomaterials via industry standard CMOS process compatible in-house micro and nanofabrication to build nanoscale devices specially nanoelectroncis for smart living and integrated systems for sustainable future (energy, health and security applications).
The group creates new nanostructured materials by designed synthesis to provide a platform for developing novel applications. Of particular interest are nanoporous (both inorganic and polymeric) materials which are characterized by large surface area, high porosity and uniform pores of molecular dimensions, and are very useful for applications in catalysis, separation, adsorption and gas storage.
The PMNP Laboratory (Yan research group) is interested in high-accuracy, high-efficiency, resource-saving manufacturing technologies. Through micro/nanometer-scale material removal, deformation, and surface property control, new products with high added value are provided to micromechanical, optical, optoelectronic, and biomechanical applications. The group is exploring multidisciplinary R&D by interfacing with mechanical science, physics, material science and nanotechnology.
The objectives of the Kimmel center for Nanoscale Science is to encourage research in this burgeoning scientific discipline in general, and to help establish the links between molecular biology and nanoscale science, in particular.
The center is one of the seven networking national research centers across the country in nanotechnology. The mission of the center is to provide higher education and advance research and knowledge in the emerging fields of nanotechnology.
Today physicists at King's are developing new ways to study the molecular processes in biological cells which cause cancer and other diseases, working to understand how the focus between the individual atoms and molecules on the nanoscale shape our macroscopic world, and continuing Maxwell's work in the unification of physics.
