The Devadas lab works on designing nanoscale functional materials. The main goal is to develop multifunctional metal-based nanostructures for energy responsive applications such as light harvesting and theranostic applications. Materials are being developed with specific aims: (i) to enhance light collection efficiency using quantum sized clusters, (ii) to develop better labelling agents with enhanced two-photon cross-sections, and (iii) to generate efficient nano-vehicles for targeted drug delivery. The lab is also interested in developing optical spectroscopic techniques to study photocatalysis on the single particle scale.
