Reinke Group

Our research group is interested in a wide range of materials, including the wonderful 2D materials graphene, silicene, and MoS2, the classic Si-surfaces as templates for nanostructures, and the curious, and novel nanospheres which form when fullerenes are heated on a metal surface. This last project is part of the investigation of catalytically active W-carbide materials (currently funded by NSF-DMR ceramics). In the past we have also observed the metal insulator transition in VO2, and the formation of fractal structures with fullerenes on graphite.
