Faculty Member: Willis, Brian
Department: Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering
Affiliation:
Excerpt: Dr. Willis research is focused on engineering when nanometers count. Future technologies that utilize nanotechnology principles will require manufacturing precision that isn’t yet achievable. Moreover, nanostructures have proportionately more surface area than larger structures, which places significantly greater importance on control of interfaces and free surfaces. We are working on solar-plasmonic devices for solar energy […]
