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


We currently have postdoctoral positions open in plasmonics. Please click here for more details.


Our research interests are currently focusing on:


(1) Noble metal nanostructures: synthesis and plasmonic properties;


(2) Metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures: synthesis, plasmonic properties and hot carrier generation and utilization;


(3) Metal oxide structures: synthesis and photocatalytic properties.


These projects are highly interdisciplinary. We aim at fundamental understanding both for scientific curiosity and for technological applications. We warmly welcome students who are interested in the topics above to apply for PhD study in physics or materials science and engineering.
