Nanoscience bridges the macroscopic and atomic/molecular worlds and ultimately controls materials' electrical and mechanical properties. So what exactly can we do with it?
With the development of new synthesis and fabrication techniques, the boundary between material and devices blurred. Imagine a new kind of material composed of billions of small nanomachines, which work together and function as a whole.
We are currently interested in developing new functional nanomaterials based on the non-equilibrium system such as light-powered nanomotor and chemical-powered active matters. The Physical properties of those new systems could be much different from traditional matters.
