ASU students are building designer electronic materials with atomic level precision, constructing molecular level logic devices in cells, and complex nanostructures based on molecular origami that self-assemble with atomic level control of function, and 2-dimensional and other novel materials for energy conversion and storage. ASU student are world leaders in research on molecular processes in solid and disordered states and in connecting geological materials to molecular processes.
