Research Interests

Professor Kuno's research group has developed a comprehensive program on the materials- and physical-chemistry of low-dimensional materials. A major aspect of their current research focuses on the synthesis and optical characterization of solution-based 1D semiconductor nanowires. The group has also begun to carry out analogous studies on solution-synthesized 2D nanosheets. These detailed synthetic, mechanistic and optical/electrical studies are critical for eventually using nanoscale materials in next generation devices.

Professor Kuno has a concurrent appointment in the Department of Physics.
