The Functional Nanomaterials group, headed by Prof. Israel Rubinstein, focuses its research in the general area of nanochemistry, namely the preparation, study and applications of novel architectures controlled on the nanometer scale. This includes:
- Development of nanostructured materials using self-assembly schemes
- Nanostructured metal and metal oxide films
- Localized plasmon transducers for sensing applications
The objective is to develop new approaches to the construction of nanomaterials, as well as applications of the newly developed nanostructures.
