The Lieber group is focused broadly on science and technology at the nanoscale, using novel synthesized building blocks to push scientific boundaries in diverse areas from biology/medicine to energy and computing.
Realization of new materials can enable revolutionary advances in science and technology. The Lieber group leads in the design and synthesis of new nanomaterials, with precise control of morphology, structure, and composition on multiple length scales.
We are focused on defining the fundamental science, engineering and novel technologies at the interface between nanoelectronics and biology, from disease marker detection to fundamental cell nano-electrophysiology through development of novel hybrid tissue.
We are focused on the development and assembly of nanowire devices, arrays and systems for nanoelectronics and computing with an emphasis on the design and realization of two- and three-dimensional circuits and nanoprocessors.
We are focused on several nano-enabled energy directions, including development of novel next-generation nanowire photovoltaic elements and nanoelectrode platforms for elucidating and enhancing electron transfer mechanisms in microbial fuel cells.
