Shawn-Yu Lin was honored for developing the “darkest nano-material on Earth,” (pictured here) which could have applications in  photonics, electronic materials, and solar energy capture

The broad research vision under this thrust builds from the fundamental understanding—experimental, theoretical, and computational—of the underlying atomic and molecular properties of a wide range of nanostructured materials. We integrate research across the broad spectrum of engineering and the physical and chemical sciences at Rensselaer—as we seek to develop robust, affordable, and sustainable methods for manufacturing new materials and the hierarchical systems and products based upon them.
