Metallic and Semi-conducting Nanowires

One of my interests is on template assisted growth of metallic and semiconducting nanowires. I am interested in application of these nanowires as biological and chemical sensors, photovoltaic cells, and artificial photosynthesis.

Metal Foams

Metal foams present low density metallic structures that have properties such as low density and low thermal conductivity with potential for use in gas storage, catalysts, fuel cells and acoustic insulation among others.
