Nanostructured Particles Research Group
Welcome to our home page
Our research is concerned with the synthesis, processing and application of complex functional particles using colloidal techniques, keeping a close eye on scalability and reproducibility of the processes used. Areas of particular interest include patchy and Janus particles synthesised using template-free heterogeneous nucleation and growth; particles with geometrically tunable plasmon resonances; and the formation of one-dimensional nanoparticle assemblies. The group is involved significantly in a wider collaboration within EAM to design and build optimized nanostructured optical particles using a unique combination of numerical, phyiscal and chemical approaches. Please go to our research page to learn more about all of these topics.
