"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...

“A new concept for hydroxyapatite in bone remodeling -the nano structure and response to mechanical strain”

Abstract:

Because of their excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity, ceramic biomaterials are clinically utilised as bone grafts for the reconstruction of injured bone tissues. Modification of the ceramic surface, leading to enhanced interaction with osteogenic cells in bone tissues, can improve the osteoconductive properties of bone grafts. The fundamental concept for bone tissue engineering is to use the natural biological responses in the host body. Here, we explored the biophysical properties of bone...

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.
