This submission is an undergraduate project by Raymond Serrano, a chemistry student at UTEP. Raymond has been a nanoHUB student for one year.

In addition to being factor of scale, nanoscience is also defined by the changes in the physical and chemical properties the nanoparticles. This presentation focuses on the optical properties of nanoparticles. The presentation and accompanying paper are designed for Jr. High students.


My name is Raymond Serrano and I was born on September 9, 1975 to Juan and Carmen Serrano.

I graduated from Andress High School in 1995 and continued my education at El Paso Community College (EPCC) and the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). I graduated from EPCC in 2002 with an Associate’s Degree in Electronics Technology. I am currently working towards a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Chemistry at UTEP and plan to graduate in the fall semester of 2007. I am also an active member of the UTEP chapter of the American Chemical Society Student Affiliates. I hope to one day work for the United States government in forensics or in nanotechnology. I spend most of my time studying at UTEP, so I do take full advantage of my spare time.

Hobbies that I enjoy are coin collecting, watching sports like football and basketball, and reading fiction books. My favorite teams are the Green Bay Packers and the San Antonio Spurs. When the season permits I love to have some family time just camping and fishing in the mountains.
