2019 NERM Meeting

A great ACS NERM Meeting in June. The Maye group had 11 presentations in total, with excellent talks by Emily, Yuetian, and Dr. Maye, along with great posters by Hediyeh, Buddhini, and Tina! 

2018 ACS Meeting

The Maye lab will have a number of presentations at this summers ACS National Meeting in Boston. Both Emily and Yuetian will be presenting:

Yuetian Chen*, "COLL 194 + Sci-Mix: Chemical and Structural Analysis of the Surface of Quantum Rods" (LINK)

Emily G. Ripka* "COLL 198 + Sci-Mix: CsPbX3 Ligand Binding Dynamics: A 2D Diffusion and Relaxation NMR Study" (LINK)

Emily G. Ripka* "PHYS 479: Monitoring Catalysis of Organohalide Reactions with Perovskite Nanoparticle Surfaces" (LINK)

Cover Article

Our collaboration with Dr. Mircea Cotlet at BNL on studying energy transfer between nano-perovskite's and 1D surfaces was recently the feature cover article in Particle. (LINK) In this project, our lab designed and synthesized a number of CsPbX3 particles, which were combined with MoS2 and graphene in the Cotlet lab and charge transfer (electron and hole) was studied using single molecule spectroscopy.

Congrats to LP!

On July 2, Laxmikant successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation, "Design & Synthesis of Stainless Steel Nanoparticles: Oxidation Behavior and Morphological Evolution". Congrats LP and good luck!

PhD Defense!

Liliana Karam defended her thesis, "The Bio-Nano Interface: Investigating the Roles of Nanoparticle Morphology, Microstructure, Optical Properties and Surface Chemistry for Biological Applications" on June 7. Congrats Lili!


Congrats to our undergraduate researchers Kevin Cruz-Lopez and Michael Klaczko, who graduated this spring as Chemistry Majors. Good luck in Medical and Graduate School!

New Perovskite Article

A new Maye Lab article published with our collaborator Dr. Micea Cotlet at Brookhaven National Lab focuses on energy transfer between Perovskite nano "dots" and "rods" with graphene. These new "solid-state all inorganic hybrids"  have increased energy harvesting and exciton production properties, potentially leading to new classes of photovoltaics and photodetectors.
