•Heteroaggregate structure directed by AC-electric field
•Chain length distribution tuned by particle size/number ratio
•Developed a unique combinatorial approach for predicting chain length
The long term goals of the Triangle MRSEC REU program are to maximize opportunities for undergraduate involvement MRSEC research, recruit diverse undergraduate students from across the country, and encourage and support future careers in materials science and engineering.
Lasing from an electromagnetic hot spot supported by coupled metal nanoparticles (NPs) has been demonstrated for the first time. This new nanolaser architecture is based on three dimensional (3D) Au bowtie NPs supported by an organic gain material. The extreme field compression, and thus ultra-small mode
From drug delivery to catalysis to optoelectronics, the need for efficient fabrication pathways for particles over a wide range of sizes, from a variety of materials, and in many different structures is
Teacher Workshop: Eighteen elementary school teachers participated in summer workshop. Student impact of approximately 200 students.
