Current research interests of the Talapin Group lie in the development of novel materials through the assembly of functional nanoscale building blocks. In recent years, we have explored different routes to materials design, including:
- synthesis of novel nanomaterials
- inorganic ligand chemistry development for electronic application
- self-assembly of nanocrystals into ordered superstructures
- electronic studies of nanocrystal arrays
The ability to assemble precisely engineered nano-building blocks into complex, hybrid structures opens the door to a new generation of complex materials in which components and functionalities can be added, tuned, or combined in a predictable manner.
