Eduardo, the first graduate student who joined the group, just 4 years ago, has successfully defended his thesis! Congrats Dr Villarreal! And as per Rice tradition, the day got capped with a tie cutting ceremony at Valhalla!
Sadegh and Emilie, in collaboration with John Biggins (Cambridge), just published a paper on Magnesium nanoplasmonics! The paper is out in Nano Letters and has been covered by AAAS!
Findings about correlations between SERS and plasmon resonances in Au arrays get published at Nanoscale
Emilie Ringe collaborated with both Hunan University and Key Laboratory of Advanced Materials to study the complex relationship between SERS behaviors and plasmon resonances on metallic nanorod arrays. More information can be found here.
Sarah Rehn investigated the controllable galvanic replacement of Ag by Au coupled with coreduction in non-aqueous solvents, yielding hollow and semi-hollow alloyed nanoparticles. The article can be found here.
Last year, the Ringe Group published a paper at ACS Nano, where transition metal decorated aluminum nano crystals were synthesized using a simple polyol process. A few days ago, such paper was highlighted at the MRS Bulletin, where Tim Palucka … Continue reading
This week we will have an on-site demo of an in-situ TEM liquid cell holder, the Poseidon select by Protochips. This instrument will allows the imaging of dynamic nanoscale processes occurring in various solvents with heating, electrochemical biasing, and liquid … Continue reading
Findings about detection of circulating tumor cells by SERS get publish in ACS Apl. Mater. Interfaces
The Ringe group collaborated with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology to research about tunable and linker free nanogaps in core–shell plasmonic nanorods for selective and quantitative detection of circulating tumor … Continue reading
Lauren McCarthy visited Professor Paul Midgley’s group at the University of Cambridge and Professor Victor Puntes’s group at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. She also managed to squeeze in some sightseeing.
An international collaboration of scientists unexpectedly observed a wide diversity in the scattering spectra from a population of nanotriangles with low shape density. The findings of this work got published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry. For more information click … Continue reading
Findings about transition metal decorated aluminum nano crystals gets accepted in ACS Nano. In his research, a simple polyol synthesis is presented as a flexible route to produce aluminum nanocrystals decorated with eight varieties of size-tunable transition metals nanoparticle islands, … Continue reading
