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.
Organic Nanowires/nanobelts: molecular design, self-assembly, and 1D confinement and enhancement of optoelectronic properties. sponsored by NSF, USTAR.
Positions Open at ZANG lab
For graduate students with research interests in organic synthesis, molecular self-assembly, organic nanowires and devices, solar cells, molecular sensing and switching, nanoscale and molecular imaging. Click here for details.
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.
