Research and Teaching Interests

The research program Yan Lui is involved in is highly interdisciplinary which combines Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Material Science. Their goal is to develop nanoparticle based multi-component and multi-functional nanostructures using self-assembly and DNA directed self-assembly, to characterize their unique optical properties, and explore their applications in bio-imaging, biosensing, etc.

The nanoparticles used include gold or silver nanoparticles, quantum dots, and magnetic nanoparticles. Surface modification of the nanoparticles by various bioconjugation methods will be explored to generate stable nanoparticles with desirable surface funtionalities. Self-assembly of DNA nanostructures form patterned DNA arrays, and the directed assembly of nanoparticles by the DNA templates generate uniquely functional nanodevices. Taking advantage of the precise spatial control of DNA nanostructures, and tunable size-or distance dependence of the properties of nanoparticles, multi-component structures with unique properties can be created. The various tools they use to characterize the nanoparticle based multi-compoent strucutures, include the microscopic imaging techniques of optical microscope, AFM, SEM or TEM, and spectral analysis tools, such as UV-Vis, fluorometer, surface Raman spectroscopy, etc.
