Welcome to the Zang Research Group!
We are part of the Utah Science Technology and Research initiative (USTAR), a long-term, state-funded program to strengthen Utah's "knowledge economy."
Current Major Research Interests:
Detecting Danger at Nanoscale: nanomaterials, nanodevices for optical/electrical sensing of explosives and other chemical threats. sponsored by DHS, NSF, NASA, USTAR, U-Utah and State of Utah.
Organic Nanowires/nanobelts: molecular design, self-assembly, and 1D confinement and enhancement of optoelectronic properties. sponsored by NSF, DHS, ACS, USTAR, U-Utah.
In collaboration with Vaporsens Inc., we strive to transfer the nanofiber technology into sensor devices to sniff out explosives, narcotics and chemcial threats.
Our labs and offices are located in the new USTAR building, James L. Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building, on the main campus of University of Utah.
