Strano Research Group

The Strano research group focuses on the synthesis, characterization, and applications of ‘low dimensional’ materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and quantum dots.  These materials have quantum confined electrons in one, two or all dimensions that impart them with new and unusual properties, distinct from their three dimensional counterparts.  The Strano group seeks both understanding and applications of the chemistry of such materials to engineer new technologies and solutions to longstanding global problems.  Examples include self-repairing photoelectrochemical cells, tissue implantable optical sensors, the concept of thermopower waves for energy generation, coherence resonance of molecules traveling in nanopores and the exciton antenna as a photovoltaic concentrator.
