Professor Christopher Li has received a three-year $346,508 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
"Multifunctional Hierarchical Structures Via Holographic Lithography and Block Copolymer Self Assembly" aims to fabricate hierarchically ordered nanostructures (from a few nanometers to the micron scale) by combining interference lithography (top-down technique) and self assembly (bottom-up method).
The proposed project has the potential to lead to a new method to achieve hierarchical nanostructures for a variety of technological applications. including multifunctional sensing, optical beam steering, and three-dimensional electronics.
