Dr. Fan's work has spurred a series of publications on journals including Nature Nanotechnology, The Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, Nano Today, Physical Review Letters, Advanced Materials, as well as three patent disclosures. Her work was widely reported by the academic news media such as Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Today, MRS Bulletin, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, PhysOrg.com, APS news, World Gold Council, and had been selected multiple times by Virtual Journals of Nanoscale Science and Technology.
Dr. Fan's lab has three active research areas:
(1) Optical biochemical sensors, single-molecule sensing, surface enhanced Raman scattering, pasmonic-semiconductor hybrid devices
(2) Bottom up assembly of mechanical nanodevices such as nanomotors, nanorobots, and nanoresonators
(3) Rational synthesis of 3-D semiconductor nanosuperstructures for energy conversion and storage devices

Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a faculty member whose research interests match your own, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
