Congrats to Gaurab Dutta for his first publication titled "The effect of electrode size and surface heterogeneity on electrochemical properties of ultrananocrystalline diamond film microelectrode" in Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry.

May 2015

Congrats to Nanosystems Engineering Senior Design Team, Jonathan Niemirowski, Yusuf Darrat, Kenneth Henry, for their successful completion of MEMbrain project.

September 2014

We welcome graduate student Nowzesh Hasan to our group.

A journal paper on the fibrinogen adsorption studies on ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) film was published online in Physica Status Solidi A: Applications and Materials Science. The paper demonstrates the excellent biocompatibility and antithrombogenicity of UNCD surfaces and its potential use as an interfacial material for implantable devices.

August 2014

We welcome graduate students Haocheng Yin and An-Yi Chang to our group.

June 2014

We received seed funding from NASA EPSCoR to develop carbon nanotube based multifunctional electrochemical probes for cell analysis.

May 2014

Our group received RCS funding from Board of Regents Support Fund to develop diamond based microsensors for chronic monitoring of dopamine and other neurochemicals.
