Chemical, Microsystem, and Nanoscale Technologies (Group 81)

The Chemical, Microsystem, and Nanoscale Technologies Group is a multidisciplinary group that combines chemistry, nanofabrication, micro-assembly, and simulations to develop new microsystem technologies for applications in larger systems. Examples of current or recent past work include the development and testing of chemical sensors for trace explosives and toxic chemical detection (both point and standoff), development of nanoplasmonic- and metamaterials-based devices with new functionalities in the visible and infrared, applications of microfluidics in biology, micro-optics, and heat management, and the development of devices and subsystems on both the microscale and nanoscale that combine chemistry with newly engineered materials.

The group’s wide range of expertise includes capabilities in organic synthesis, mass spectrometry, and materials science, and its work is enabled by access to state-of-the-art facilities, such as the advanced synthesis, mass spectrometry, and surface science laboratories and the class-10 Microelectronics Laboratory.
