Welcome to the Filler Research Group at the Georgia Institute of Technology!
We are a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers that seeks to dramatically advance the structural complexity and function of nanoscale materials. In pursuit of this goal, we are pioneering the application of in-situ spectroscopic techniques to interrogate the fundamental processes that govern the bottom-up synthesis of these materials, particularly inorganic semiconductor nanowires, and their resultant properties. These studies are laying the atomic-level chemical foundation necessary to rationally manipulate growth mechanisms such that structure can be robustly engineered at multiple length scales. We subsequently use this information to design novel materials with applications in fields such as energy conversion, electronics, and photonics.
