Nanomatériaux (énergie, biomédical)


The group of Professor Ma (joined INRS in 2006) publishes in the fields of nanomaterials, solar cells, catalysis, plasmon-enhanced applications, etc.  We are interested in i) developing various nanomaterials and nanostructures (e.g., semiconductor quantum dots, transition metal catalytic nanoparticles, metal oxide, plasmonic nanostructures, and nanohybrids), ii) studying their properties and iii) investigating their applications in energy (e.g., solar cell), catalysis (including photocatalysis, water splitting, etc) and biomedical sectors.
