Welcome to MuSES Lab

Our society constantly faces energy and environmental challenges. MuSES lab is dedicated to addressing those challenges through interdisciplinary research and world-class educational programs, which would prepare future leaders who can create new technologies and make technically and ethically sound decisions. We believe that the development of micro and nano technologies during the past decades has provided us a solid ground to pursue our goals. We focus our research efforts on the investigation of micro/nano-scale phenomena that have the potential to provide scalable technologies for our macro world. We are passionate about using our expertise on micro and nano fabrication, electrochemistry, microfluidics, and advanced energy systems to contribute to the sustainable future of our society.
