Our team is addressing fundamental issues on energy conversion and storage at the nanoscale. We employ a wide range of nano-fabrication technologies to build prototype fuel cells and capacitors with induced topological electronic states. We are testing these concepts and novel material structures with the help of atomic layer deposition, scanning tunneling microscopy, impedance spectroscopy and other technologies. In addition, we use atomic scale modeling to gain insights into the nature of charge separation and recombination processes. Our intention is to eventually publish all scientific results from our Laboratory. For a list of recently reviewed publications, please visit our highlighted Research Publications.

Memories 50: A celebration of Professor Fritz Prinz's long-term contributions to his research fields was held on the campus of UCLA in July 2017. The conference, "A Modern Look at Energy, Nano/Rapid Manufacturing, and Robotics" brought together students and colleagues, past and present, to discuss current research projects and reflect upon their experiences and collaborations with Professor Prinz.
