Patolsky Center- Nanotechnology Research

Nanoscale science holds extraordinary promises to impact the crucial issues our era, such as improved medical diagnosis and treatment, renewable energy, more efficient information technology, and environmental protection. From the basic science perspective, our lab designs new nanoscale building blocks, studies their fundamental physical and chemical properties and develop ways to organize them into complex assemblies with new functionalities. At the practical level, we harness the new and exciting properties of these nano materials for various applications such as biological and chemical sensing of molecules of interest ,probing the electrical behavior of complex neuronal networks with high spatial precision, or creating a new generation of solar-cell devices.
