The Krauss Group

Welcome to the Krauss Group!

Welcome to the website of the Krauss group. Our labs are located on the 2nd floor of Hutchison Hall at the beautiful University of Rochester. Our research goal is a complete understanding of the fundamental properties of materials with a size in between individual molecules and the bulk. Unlike macroscopic materials, these objects have physical characteristics that are strong functions of its size and shape. Thus, nanometer scale materials have properties that can be easily controlled and manipulated. Currently, our investigations are focused on fundamental studies of carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanocrystals, and the integration of these materials into both novel non-linear optical devices and biological sensors. These studies are highly interdisciplinary, and lie at the interface between chemistry, physics, applied physics, and materials science.
