Nanocrystals are building blocks for a new class of functional, composite materials that can be completely assembled from the bottom up. My research addresses three major themes related to this area: (1) The development of new shape-controlled synthetic strategies to generate monodisperse nanocrystals in a range of useful materials. Understanding the complex interplay between kinetics and thermodynamics is key to developing a general mechanism for the synthesis of colloidal nanocrystals. (2) Self-assembly of shaped colloidal nanocrystals into superlattices with long-range order approaching dimensions currently only achievable in bulk, crystalline materials. Precise control of nanocrystal monodispersity in addition to interactions and driving forces is necessary to achieve large-scale superlattices. And (3), the development of new kinds of self-assembled composite materials with interesting electronic, optical and catalytic properties. The combination of new properties and high surface area will lead to novel materials for energy production and storage.
