Challenges and Solutions to Functional Nanoparticle Devices

TYPESpecial Seminar - Solid State Institute, Technion
Speaker:Professor Richard Robinson
Affiliation:Cornell University, U.S.A.
Location:Solid State Auditorium(Entrance)
Remark:Host: Professor Efrat Lifshitz

Our research group works to gain a fundamental understanding of how to program and process nanoscale building  blocks  into  functional  structures,  and  the  structure-property  relationships  of  the  resulting nanostructured materials. We seek to develop new nano-materials and methods for energy storage, fuel cells, and printable electronics. In this talk I will discuss our recent results overcoming critical challenges to the goal of creating functional nanostructured materials. I will discuss our work on scaling  the synthesis, and our work creating functional nanoparticle assemblies.
