high-quality noble metal nanocrystals. Please
click the image below for more information.
research interests are currently focusing on:
Make noble metal nanostructures with desired plasmonic properties and
study their plasmonic properties;
(2) Study the
interactions between plasmon and optically active species;
metal/semiconductor hybrid nanostructures, study their plasmonic
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
