My research focuses on synthesis of nanostructures, assembly and manipulation of 1D nanostructure, and development of nanodevices:
1. Graphene: preparation, optical characterization, chemical/biological sensor, electrical devices
2. Substrate-friendly synthesizes of metal oxide nanostructures with controlled morphologies and patterns.
3. Wet-chemical method for fabrication of metal hydroxides and metal oxides nanostructures.
4. Field induced electron emission of individual nanowires or nanowire arrays
5. Electronic transport and mechanical properties of individual nanostructures
6. Nanowire FETs for nanoelectronics, nano-chemical sensors and nano-biological sensors
