About the NanoFast Lab
The NanoFast research group at UC Davis, led by Prof. Ting Guo, is developing interdisciplinary methods using nanomaterials to convert different forms of electromagnetic energy into chemical and mechanical energy.
By synthesizing nanomaterials in various forms (nanoparticles, wires, tubes, etc.), they can use them as building blocks for catalysts, spectroscopy enhancers or even networks of nanomaterials able to focus radiation energy.
