Haberer awarded NSF grant to study self-propelled nanomaterials

Professor Elaine Haberer received a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to study synthetic nanoswimmers. These remarkable self-propelled materials can convert chemical or light energy into locomotion, increasing mixing and accelerating chemical reactions. Asymmetry in particle composition enables movement through a local build-up of reaction products, while particle size and geometry control speed and directionality. The...
