Baranov Group

General Activity

Understanding and controlling materials from chemistry and physics perspectives are essential for progress. We aim to advance the development of nanomaterials through close interaction between nanochemistry and spectroscopy. The group’s current objectives are nanocrystal synthesis, self-assembly, and the elucidation of structure-property relationships.
