Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field with a plethora of novel applications, including mobile/flexible computing, light-emitting diodes, solar energy devices as well as microarrays for genomics, proteomics, and tissue engineering. Our group’s focus is in developing tools that enable the reliable, low-cost manufacture of these technologies at industrial scales. In order to achieve this goal, we are exploring improvements to current lithographic techniques as well as new self-assembly strategies for particles at the nanoscale.┬áTo this end we use both atomistic and continuum simulations supplemented with theory and experiment as needed.
