Physicists Say Nanoparticles Could Block Excess Infrared Solar Radiation

Dr. Lucas V. Besteiro

Ohio University researchers co-authored a study proposing a new take on energy-efficient window design using energy-saving glasses and films that are cost-effective and block excessive solar infrared radiation. Dr. Lucas Besteiro, a former post-doctoral researcher at OHIO, Visiting Research Scholar Dr. Xiang-Tian Kong, and  Dr. Alexander Govorov, Distinguished Professor of […]

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 […]
