The Center for Nanohybrid Functional Materials (CNFM) includes seventeen investigators from five Nebraska colleges and universities. CNFM targets the discovery and exploitation of new sensing principles based upon the combination of 3-D ordered nanostructures and chemical or biochemical sensing elements. Research within CNFM is focused within three complementary and mutually supporting clusters, and includes the acquisition of specialized instrumentation for a developing core facility.
Cluster 1, Nanohybrid Fabrication, focuses on preparation of highly ordered spatially coherent 3-D nanostructures, their hybridization with chemical or biological sensing elements, and their immobilization or inclusion within polymer matrices.
Cluster 2, Nanohybrid Characterization and New Sensing Principles, focuses on new characterization and sensing principles based on unique properties of the nanohybrids, including techniques based upon Terahertz to UV ellipsometry.
Cluster 3, Molecular Interactions within Nanohybrid-based devices, focuses on potential sensing and separation applications based on molecular interactions within nanohybrid-based devices.
