Welcome to the Hahm Group website!  Our research interests include the physical chemistry, materials science, and biomedical applications of nanomaterials.  Our research program is highly interdisciplinary, and utilizes material synthesis, biotechnology and the fundamental properties of polymeric, metallic, and semi-conducting nanomaterials.  Our study focuses on 1D nanostructures such as nanotubes, nanowires, and nanorods.  We study the fundamental properties of metallic and semiconducting nanomaterials in order to identify their unique physical, chemical, optical, or electrical properties for advancing biotechnology and medicine.  We then exploit their exciting properties for biomedical and clinical research.  We carry out highly advanced detection of DNA sequences, telomerases, and cytokine assays through nanostructure array-based platforms.  In order to facilitate the assembly of functional nanomaterial devices directly upon their synthesis, we also investigate biologically-inspired synthetic routes for producing the nanomaterials.  Our novel approaches include the use of biogenic catalysts and self-assembly for the rapid and large-scale fabrication of ready-to-use nanomaterials.  In addition to inorganic nanostructures, we are also interested in conducting fundamental studies on biological and polymeric molecules at nanoscale.  We investigate the unique surface adsorption behavior of proteins on nanoscale templates to elucidate the origin of such behavior.  We are in the Department of Chemistry at Georgetown University, and a part of the Institute of the Soft Matter Synthesis and Metrology (ISM2).  For a more detailed description of our research, feel free to explore our group web site or contact Professor Hahm.
