"The nanostructure research group is located at the School of Physics, Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta Georgia. The main focus of the groups deals with the synthesis and characterization of nanometer scale crystalline molecules (nanocrystals), or what has been coined as highly oriented molecular (Au, Ag) nanocrystalline arrays (HOMANA's). Research into the properties of nanometer-scale single crystallites has recently matured into a field that is both fundamental and wide-ranging, although a major source of motivation arises from certain natural phenomena and from technological questions concerning ultimate limits on the miniaturization of solid-state device elements. Theoretical modelling, or simulations, are critical in establishing ideas and models for the structural, processing, and other properties of nanocrystals; supercomputer-based simulations are carried out in association with the Georgia Tech Center for Computational Materials Science. Synthesis of the nanomolecules is achieved both by liquid phase and aerosol techniques. Characterization is currently being done by high resolution electron microscopy (HREM) at the Georgia Tech Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy. Small and large angle x-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning probe microscopy (SPM), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), IR and UV-vis spectroscopy, and laser desorption (LD) and matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometry are among the other characterization tools being used for structural analysis."

"We are interested in synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles by a template reaction. The template, normally carbon, allows the formation of uncommon structures, e.g. bulk palladium crystallize only fcc. We could get hcp Pd nanoparticles. It was theoretically predicted by a French group that Pd slabs with 2-5 layers in thickness are ferromagnetic; bulk Pd is paramagentic. In a first principal study a hysteresis could be observed by magnetic measurements. A more detailed magnetic investigation is now in progress with a group at SUNNY Binghamton, USA.

In the area of nanotechnology we investigate the steric colloid formation, micellization and micelles coacervation measurement and theory of some well-characterized asphaltene molecules in various media at different conditions and their utility as the building block for nanoscale geometries is in progress.
Thin films, multilayers, cylinders, spheres and coacerved nanostructures of well-characterized asphaltene molecule, often expressed by the dimensionality of 0, 1, 2 and 3 are expected to be formed in nanoscale. At concentrations above the CMC, asphaltene in the solution is known to self-associate, saturation phase is known to be formed and then at a higher concentration asphaltene nano-structure micelles in the solution is expected to coacervate represented by a second sharp point of inflection corresponding to the asphaltene MCP and finally, at a higher concentration the aggregation of asphaltenes coacervates will occur. Experimental results of the critical micellization concentration (CMC) and the micelle coacervation point (MCP) of asphaltene micelles are being studied in light of the theories of micellization. Probing microscopy is used to study intermolecular structure and properties of such organic nanostructures.G.Ali Mansoori, Professor
