High impact research requires collaborations

The field of nanoscience is large and diverse because of the promise it holds for transformational technologies. High impact research requires collaborations between diverse research groups. Collaboration brings unique skill sets to to allow the group to tackle problems that could not be addressed alone. It's becoming increasingly necessary to foster collaborations among research groups in different countries. Trainees are given the opportunity to work with visiting collaborators. The advanced facilities at the University of Texas gives the trainees access to necessary experimental equipment (e.g. chemical vapor deposition and versatile optical setup with tunable Titanium-sapphire laser). The groups' varied backgrounds in nanoscience with access to advanced equipment make these collaborations well suited to address research on electromagnetic interactions in hybrid metallic-semiconductor nanostructures.
