Research Interests:

  • Nanostructured Materials
  • Energy
  • Chemistry of Materials

Research Overview: Bridging boundaries between chemistry and materials science, Chris researches the synthesis characterization and integration of nanostructured materials, with an emphasis on the exploration of finite size effects in nanoscale magnets and semiconductors. His seminal contributions include the development of nanocrystalline materials, the creation of artificial atoms (nanocrystals or quantum dots) that self assemble into devices with completely new multi-functionalities. Chris is exploring self-organizing phenomena for applications in information processing, communication, and storage.
