Ping Lab | Nano/Bio Interfaces & Applications

The goal of our lab is to determine the fundamental principles governing applications of nanomaterials and nanomaterial-based device structures in biotechnology, healthcare, environmental monitoring, and so on.

Fanscinating phenomena emerge as materials or devices scale down, inducing "surprises" and offering promise for dramatic improvement in the material/device performances. However, not all "surprises" are favorable. Moreover, fabrication and invesitigation at micro/nano scales can be technically challenging.

We tackle the challenges by combining technques in bioelectronics, microfluidics, microscopy, microfabrication and more (sometimes we invent the techniques) to harness innovative physicochemical properties at micro/nano scales and create devices/systems for processing, detecting, or/and stimulating biosystems.
