The major research interests of the group are the design, fabrication, characterization and applications of various active nanostructures such as nanofibers, nanotubes, nanojunctions and nanotrees. The active materials currently under exploration include piezoelectric, piezoresistive or conductive, thermal electric and photovoltaic materials. The targeted applications of the various nanostructures developed are acoustic sensors for structural health monitoring, medical devices for thrombus retrieving, nanoacoustic waves for circulating cancer cell screening, chemical sensors for various gases and explosives, biosensors for stroke diagnostics, and energy scavenging involving mechanical-electric, thermoelectric, optoelectric and chemical-electric energy conversions.
Participation in the Nanotechnology Graduate Program leads to Masters of Science, Masters of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy in the respective disciplines with a designated nanotechnology concentration. To qualify for the nanotechnology concentration, in addition to satisfying disciplinary core requirements, candidates for Masters' degrees must complete the common core and a minimum of three elective courses and should attend regularly the seminar series in the Nanotechnology Curriculum.
