  Surface Nanoscience and Sensor Technology Section    

The Surface Nanoscience and Sensor Technology Section is an integrated team of biochemists, chemists, engineers, and physicists working at the nexus of nanoscience, biotechnology, and microfluidics. Current research encompasses the creation and analysis of semiconductor, organic, and biomolecular nanostructures, investigation of new materials for biological and chemical sensing, and the fabrication and testing of advanced sensing platforms for biological and chemical warfare defense. We employ a wide range of surface analytical techniques, ranging from electron spectroscopies and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in ultra-high vacuum (UHV) to atomic force microscopy (AFM), ellipsometry, and infrared spectroscopy in ambient environments. We actively pursue new nanoscale phenomena that enhance biosensors, power sources, or microelectronics.  We also develop new surface/interface-related techniques for the characterization and fabrication of surfaces, interfaces, and nanostructures.
