Welcome to Nanoscience & Biotechnology Lab

About the Lab

The research goal of our group is to develop a multidisciplinary research program that focuses on advancing nanotechnologies to address the grand challenges in biomedicine and energy applications. Our focus of research is threefold. (1) Develop advanced scalable method to create functional nanostructures using nanoimprint lithography and additive manufacturing. (2) Engineer nanomaterials (2D materials, quantum dots, etc.) and metamaterial cavities to probe light-matter interactions. (3) Develop nanosensing systems for controlled manipulation and high-sensitivity detection of biomolecules.
