Cui Lab: When the size of materials is reduced to the nanoscale dimension, physical and chemical properties can change dramatically. In addition, nanostructures also afford new exciting opportunities of low-cost processing. We are interested in a broad range of nanoscale properties including electronic, photonic, electrochemical, mechanical, catalytic and interfacial properties. Understanding these properties has important technological implications in energy conversion and storage, electronics, biotechnology and environmental technology. We study fundamentals of nanomaterials including nanowires, colloidal nanocrystals and patterned nanostructures, develop low-cost processings and address critical issues in real-world applications.

My current work focuses on ratchets – far-from-equilibrium devices that transport particles using local asymmetries, rather than overall biases. Ratchets are rectifiers – they extract directional motion from non-directed sources of energy, like chemical energy and Brownian motion. Biological motors in the body use ratchet mechanisms, and produce motion very efficiently, even in the highly-damped biological conditions, where the noise is actually orders of magnitude stronger than the chemical energy available. We want to understand how the ratcheting applies to electrons, especially under highly-damped conditions, like in low-mobility organic semiconductors. Very little experimental work has been done on electron ratchets, and so we mainly seek to improve our understanding of the mechanism, with an eye toward possible future applications in solar cells or other electronic devices.
