Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Graphene Implementation in Everyday Life

Ever since its first discovery, graphene has been touted as a wonder material. One of the strongest materials in existence, graphene has much potential for a wide variety of applications due to its superior features enabled by it being a zero band gap semiconductor. Do you think it is possible for graphene to be truly implemented in various applications based on the research where it stands? This project could either be a paper review and prediction to the future, or choosing one of the properties of graphene to study further.

Producing Polymer Colloids

Colloids are particles in a size range of 1 nm to 1 µm with a high surface area per unit mass. Colloidal particles have been used in various applications such as pharmaceuticals, catalysis, surface science, nano-composites, and printing. In spite of such a wide usage for colloids, it is challenging to continuously produce colloidal particles in a large volume. This project could seek to optimize the conditions for concentration and type of solvent to produce unimodally distributed polymer colloids.
