Developing Self-Assembly Strategies


The Surface Chemistry Group, led by Professor Steve Tait, is developing self-assembly strategies to produce highly-ordered and functional nanometer-scale architectures at surfaces. These structures have properties that may allow for highly efficient electron transfer interfaces in organic photovoltaic devices and novel strategies for heterogeneous catalysis. State of the art analytical tools are used for characterization: atomic-resolution scanning probe microscopy to characterize surface structures and highly sensitive spectroscopy to detect composition and chemical states of surface species. Current projects in our group are focusing highly robust surface architectures, new interfaces for organic solar cell technologies, patterning of functional organic layers, exploration of new adlayer symmetries, and surface-supported complexes for novel catalysts.
