Nanoscience

 

Our increasing abilities to control, understand and manipulate matter and related interactions are transforming many areas in science and technology. Such advances have been, to a large extent, enabled by the convergence of techniques and perspectives from a broad range of disciplines.

The research interests at UC Merced in the field of nanoscale science and technology include

  • directed assembly of nanostructures for information and energy transfer (Ghosh, Hirst)
  • optical properties of nanostructures (GhoshScheibner, Strubbe),
  • quantum optics and quantum information in nanoscale systems including superconducting quantum computing, semiconductor optics, and nanomechanics (TianChien)
  • combination of physics and biochemistry methodologies to tune the nano-machinery of molecular motors (Xu).
