Professor of Chemistry and Physics
Research in the Guyot-Sionnest Group is driven by physical concepts and enabled by synthesis. Chemistry and physics share tremendous potential at the nanoscale. This is where chemistry excels and where physics predicts that many properties can be tuned. For example, quantum states, charging, spin, phonons, and plasmons show large effects at the nanometer scale, which can be investigated by using colloidal synthesis to chemically precipitate nanostructures.
