The Tait Research Group is applying surface analysis tools to study functional nanometer-scale architectures at surfaces formed by self-assembly of organic building blocks. This research combines the understanding of growth kinetics and materials characterization of physical and analytical chemistry with the rich building block library and supramolecular organization schemes of organic and inorganic chemistry. Prof. Taitís research group utilizes a variety of surface analysis methods to develop and characterize these systems. Efficient patterning of solid surfaces with organic materials is a challenging research problem that has the potential to open up new opportunities and new technologies in many fields, including molecular electronics, catalysis, molecular recognition/sensors and magnetism.
