Nanomaterials Group

Nanomaterials Group Image

Research in the Nanomaterials Group, directed by Distinguished University and Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor Yury Gogotsi, is focused on the fundamental and applied aspects of the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanodiamond, and nanoporous carbons), ceramic nanoparticles (whiskers, nanowires, etc.), and composites. The group develops and studies new nanomaterials and works closely with industry with the goal of significantly decreasing the time from discovery to commercial application for new materials.
