Multimodal Assembly of Colloidal Nanocrystals in Periodic and Addressable Superstructures (MACNAS)
This IRC Consolidator Laureate Award Start date Sept 18 to Prof Kevin M Ryan is funded by the Irish Research Council for 4 Years with a focus on electrophoretic deposition of complex nanocrystal architectures.
Team Members , Prof Kevin M Ryan, Nilotpal Kapuria, Saikat Bhowmick
|Objectives1. Achieve complete control of the nanocrystal modular unit needed for MACNAS assembly|
|2. Develop a complete experimental and theoretical model for NC assembly from non-polar solutions under electric fields (both DC and AC)|
|3. Demonstrate optical and electrical addressability of novel nanorod architectures.|
