We are particularly interested in developing high performance nanomaterials for various application in luminescence, catalysis, sensing, biology, device fabrication, energy applications, etc. Our research is highly interdisciplinary and we work at the interface of chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and materials science.  

Our group is always on the lookout for selfmotivated, highly enthusiastic students (postdocs, research scholars, master students, etc.) Individuals with great interest in the multidisciplinary research of nanoscience and nanotechnology are encouraged to contact the group leader (Dr. M. N. Luwang).
