Nanoscale Interfaces & Assembly

Interfaces play a fundamental role in dictating the physical properties and emerging phenomena of low-dimensional materials such as nanowires, nanoparticles, and quantum dots. The Tao research group is interested in the synthesis and surface chemistry of nanoscale materials, with an emphasis on developing new approaches for rational assembly and integration into composites and biological systems.

We are located in the new Structural & Materials Engineering Building @UCSD. Our group is constantly evolving. If you're interested in joining the Tao Group, please contact us!
