Within this web site you will find information about the Kuno group.  Briefly, we have developed a comprehensive program on the materials- and physical-chemistry of low-dimensional materials.  Using microscopy, we probe the optical properties of individual nanostructures to reveal their individuality.  Measurements are conducted in both the visible and infrared parts of the spectrum.  In the latter case, we have developed a new super-resolution infrared imaging technique to conduct single particle infrared absorption spectroscopies.  Our synthetic work has focused on preparing low-dimensional semiconductor systems such as solution-based semiconductor nanowires, nanoplatelets and colloidal quantum dots.  Using the above links, you can learn more about our ongoing studies, publications and active collaborations.  Please contact us if you require additional information.
