Hihath Research Group

We seek not only to understand the interplay between the electrical, mechanical, optical and thermal properties of these systems, but also to design and develop unique molecular-scale functions that harness these properties for novel device  functions. Research at this scale is inherently interdisciplinary and requires collaboration between engineers, chemists, physicists, biologists, and medical personnel. Research Interests: chemical and environmental sensing, biological diagnostics, signal transduction, charge transport in Single Molecule Devices, electronic properties of molecules, molecular scale energy conversion and electron phonon interactions.
