We supply high-quality noble metal nanocrystals. Please click the image below for more information.


Our research interests are currently focusing on:


(1) Make noble metal nanostructures with desired plasmonic properties and study their plasmonic properties;


(2) Study the interactions between plasmon and optically active species;


(3) Make metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures, study their plasmonic properties;


(4) Use metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures for light-enhanced chemical synthesis and chemical fuel production.


These projects are highly inter-related and interdisciplinary. We aim at fundamental understanding both for scientific curiosity and for enabling potential applications.
