Research Highlights

Force Volume Mapping

force volume mappingA team of 8 graduate students earned an A+ for an assignment  in CHEM7750 by writing a publication quality review article. The published mini-review article was featured on the cover of ACS Omega in October 2021. The invited, open-access publication highlights the versatility for measurements which apply the scanning probe microscopy mode of force volume mapping (FVM) for characterizing chemical, mechanical, and electrical properties at the nanoscale.

Solid-State NMR of Cellular Samples

NMR studies

Wang Group discussed the current status and promising future directions in the use of Solid-state NMR for understanding the conformational structure, dynamical characteristics, and supramolecular assemblies of carbohydrates and other biomolecules in extracellular matrixes and native cells. The review spans across many organisms including plants, bacteria, fungi, and algae.


Hybrid plasmonic nanoparticles

Ag@Au nanopartical imaging

In this paper, the in situ growth dynamics of colloidal silver-gold core-shell (Ag@Au CS) nanoparticles in water are monitored in a stepwise synthesis approach using time-dependent second harmonic generation and extinction spectroscopy combined with finite-difference time-domain calculations.
