Irving Herman headshot


Student Project Titles List

Investigating Nanoparticle Monolayer Self-Assembly at Liquid/Liquid Interfaces Using Small Angle X-Ray Scattering and Visible Wavelength Reflectance

Research Areas

Herman's research concentrates on the fundamental aspects and applications of laser interactions with matter and nanoscience. This includes properties of nanocrystals and films composed of nanocrystals, van der Waals layers, optical physics of the solid state, molecular and chemical physics, thin film processing, and optical spectroscopy. One active area of research in his group is the study of the optical properties of semiconductor and metal oxide nanocrystals and how to assemble them into films by controlled evaporation and electrophoretic deposition (electric field directed assembly).
