to Ramki Kalyanaraman's Group!
Our long term
goal is to design, make and characterize advanced functional materials
with applications in sensing, information processing and energy
harvesting, amongst others. These applied goals will be realized through
fundamental research in self-assembly and
self-organization,energetic beam (laser, ion beam)-material
interactions, plasmonics, magnetism and the design and characterization
complex and multifunctional
nanocomposites made from metals, ceramics and semiconductors.
Immediate application areas being investigated include broadband solar
absorbing materials for photovoltaics, surfaces for Surface Enhanced
Raman Scattering (SERS), magnetic sensing/data storage and
linear/non-linear optical materials based on
