Nanoscale Molecular Science

Home / Graduate Study / Graduate Research / Nanoscale Molecular Science

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