Inorganic Materials Synthesis & Processing
Inorganic materials synthesis and processing scientists and engineers create everything from new nanomaterials, to “smart” structural materials that incorporate additional functions such as sensing.
These researchers work with graphene and other carbon nanostructures, for applications ranging from catalysis to nanoelectronics to:
- Produce metal and semiconductor nanoparticles for future generations of low-cost printable electronics and displays
- Create new organometallic coordination compounds that can capture and store solar energies in a manner equivilant to photosynthesis, but with much higher efficiency
- Develop new thin film structures that enable the next generations of optical, magnetic, and electronic high density data storage
