Welcome to the research group of Dr. Emory Chan
in the Inorganic Nanostructures Facility
at the Molecular Foundry
! Our group synthesizes colloidal nanocrystals as substrates for patterning complex materials.
The three major thrusts of our group's research are:
- Combinatorial nanoscience: Developing approaches to precisely synthesize large libraries of nano- and mesostructures and to rapidly screen their physical properties.
- Upconverting and doped nanoparticles: Engineering dopant compositions and dopant profiles to tune the optical properties of nanomaterials.
- Patterning: Patterning energy and materials across assemblies of nanocrystals using biologically inspired strategies.
