[Illinois] Silver and Gold Nanoparticles: New Directions for Theory
12 Nov 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): George C. Schatz
George C. Schatz is Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry and of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. Degrees include a B. S. (1971) at Clarkson University and Ph. D. (1976) at Caltech, both in chemistry. He was a postdoc at MIT, and has been at Northwestern since 1976. Schatz has published three books and over 680 papers. Schatz is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences and he is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry. Awards include Sloan and Dreyfus Fellowships, the Fresenius Award of Phi Lambda Upsilon, the Max Planck Research Award, the Bourke Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Ver Steeg Fellowship of Northwestern University, the Feynman Prize of the Foresight Institute, and the Debye Award of the ACS. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Chemical Society and the AAAS.
Schatz’s research is concerned with theory and computational modeling in a variety of nanoscience topics as well as in related fields of biophysics and materials. His nanoscience work has specialized in the optical properties of noble metal nanoparticles, nanoholes in films and other nanostructured materials of relevance to chemical and biological sensing, solar energy, plasmonic device applications, and plasmon-induced chemistry. He has worked actively in the theory and modeling of the mechanical properties of hard materials, including diamond films, graphene and carbon nanotubes, and in the chemical functionalization of these materials. These studies have involved the development of molecular dynamics/electronic structure methods for modeling chemical reactions surfaces, and electronic structure/classical electrodynamics methods for calculating nanostructure optical properties.
