Faculty: Agrios, Alexander
Department: Civil & Environmental Engineering
Excerpt: Transparent Conducting Aerogels: A transparent conducting oxide material (antimony-doped tin oxide) fabricated in the aerogel morphology, which is a high-surface area, high-porosity, highly networked structure. The aerogels can be conformally coated with other materials by atomic layer deposition providing both a more rigid structure and one with intended interface properties. Molecularly Tethered Nanocatalysts: Platinum nanoparticles […]
