Su Liu, Ph.D.


Since my first research project on organic nanowires, my close to ten years' research career has been involving nanoscience. Engineering of nanostructures, multimodal characterization of nanomaterials, study of their distinct properties from the bulk, and application of single to an ensemble of nanoparticles have been my research interests. In particular, I have investigated intensively the laser excitation of nanoparticles and organic molecules and their emission dynamics, in the motivation to engineer nanostructures for suitable optoelectronic properties. Metal nanostructures fabricated using wet chemical processing and lithographic methods are my recent research focus, which is driven by their potential usage in localization of light and plasmonic sensing. A variety of techniques are utilized in my research, which mainly are single molecule and ensemble fluorescence spectroscopy, time-resolved spectroscopy, AFM, SEM, ion-beam lithography and thin film deposition.
