Assistant Professor, Department of Chemistry
will be presenting 
"Nonlinear and Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Colloidal Plasmonic Nanoparticles"

Abstract:

Hybrid plasmonic colloidal nanoparticles and their interactions with biological molecules, dye molecules, and light are investigated using nonlinear and ultrafast spectroscopy. The photocleaving dynamics of microRNA-functionalized plasmonic nanoparticles in colloidal suspension in water are monitored using time-dependent second harmonic generation (...

Ph.D Nanoscale Science
Seminar Series Spring 2018


Ludovico Cademartiri

Assistant Professor, Department of Materials Science & Engineering
will be presenting 
"Simple Solutions for (and from) Materials Chemistry” 

Abstract:

In this seminar, I will discuss the apparent correlation between impact – whether academic, technological, or scientific – and simple solutions. While defining “simplicity” is a notoriously poorly defined problem that is maybe more suited to philosophy than science, defining “simple solutions” can be, we contend, done effectively and more...

Nanoscale Science - Faculty in Focus

The Poler Research Group consists of students from the Nanoscale Science Ph.D. program, the Optical Science and Engineering Ph.D. program, the Master’s of Science program in Chemistry, Undergraduates from various disciplines (Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Engineering, and Math), and High School students from around the state. We pursue fundamental studies of molecular and nanoscale systems to understand directed and self-assembly processes. We aim to design new particles and materials with higher functionality and effectiveness. Our long-term interests are toward: novel mechanisms for mechanical transducers and sensors in NEMS, energy storage in supercapacitors, catalytic solar fuel production, water purification, and optical metamaterials.
