Research Interests 
Our "Advanced Molecular Nanoscience and Technology" group research is aimed at the creation and understanding of nano-/micro scale molecules possessing unique photonic and/or magnetic properties. We take a highly inter-disciplinary approach to achieve our research goal by adopting top-down and bottom-up Nano-Technology tools. 
Our research involves the use of a wide range of techniques, starting from "Tailor-made" molecular synthesis, development of various molecular self-assembly techniques, exploitation of ultra modern spectroscopic/microscopic methods down to single particle level (~1 micron), till the creation of miniaturized functional molecular solids for future smart device applications. 
Our group research is focused on three major cutting-edge areas: Molecular/Polymer Self-assembly, Organic Photonics, 2D/3D Lithography.
