'Have you ever seen an atom?'

If your answer is no, you should consider attending my talk.

My research involves making tiny objects with the size of the order of nanometers. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter. In other words, if you take four silver atoms (think of them like tennis balls) place them side by side, they stretch about a nanometer. When things get that small, the laws of quantum physics over the laws of classical physics. In our group, we use various experimental tools to make new low-dimensional nanomaterials and study their physical and chemical properties. These materials can have zero, one or two dimensions.

Because of their reduced dimension and small size, these materials exhibit rather curious physical properties which makes them useful for various applications ranging from medicine to energy.

In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to the field and present some of the research we do at UND.
