Studies of supramolecular systems “mechanically wrapping” about nanotubes, nanoparticles, and quantum dots. Elucidating energy and charge transfer mechanisms. Manufacturing nanomachines, nanosensors, nanotransducers and nanoparticle based composites for energy storage applications.
Most of our research interests are toward the fundamental studies of complex systems at the nanoscale with regard to applications of materials at the macroscale. The Poler Research Group is particularly interested in how large supramolecular systems interact with and “Mechanically wrap” about nanoparticles like carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs, DWCNTs, and MWCNTs), metal nanoparticles (NPs), and quantum dots (QDots). Specifically, we are trying to elucidate energy and charge transfer mechanism between these systems while we work toward efficient manufacturing methods of nanomachines, nanosensors, nanotransducers, nanoparticle based composites, energy storage, and water purification materials.
