Govorov Quoted in Materials Today about Ceramic Nanoparticles

Distinguished Professor Alexander Govorov

Dr. Alexander Govorov, Distinguished Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Ohio University, was quoted in a Materials Today story headlined “Ceramic nanoparticles turn light around.” Nanomaterials whose optical properties change in response to a magnetic field could have a central role in spintronics, magnetooptics, magnetochemisty, and chiral catalysis. But, until […]

Physicists Use a Silver Nanoparticle to Advance Ultrafast Energy Transfer

The transmission electron microscope image shows the structure, incorporating three nanocrystals and assembled on a DNA-origami carpet.  The mediator in the middle: a silver nanocrystal between two gold nanocrystals ensures the ultrafast and almost loss-free transfer of the energy. Illustration: Liedl / Hohmann (NIM).

  Three Ohio University physicists have collaborated with a three-member team of colleagues based in Germany to describe how multi-material chains made of silver nanoparticles can significantly reduce energy consumption when using plasmonic nanoparticles as energy and information transfer elements. OHIO Post-Doctoral Researcher Dr. Lucas Besteiro, doctoral student Larousse Khosravi […]
