BROSSEAU LAB FOR SUSTAINABLE CHEMISTRY AND MATERIALS RESEARCH

Our research aims to understand and exploit the properties of nanoscale materials. In particular we are interested in the unique optical and electronic properties observed when certain nanoscale metals interact with light. We use plasmonic materials to develop state-of-the-art molecular sensors, and we are interested in advancing sustainable plasmonic materials. Our research is generously supported by funding from NSERC, CFI, NSRIT and the Canada Research Chairs program.

 

RESEARCH

Envisioning a Sustainable Future through Nanoscience

SUSTAINABLE PLASMONICS

We are investigating the optical and electronic properties of sustainable plasmonic materials, with a current focus on earth-abundant elements and nanomaterials synthesized using green approaches.

PLASMONIC SENSING

Our area of specialty is in advancing plasmonics for point-of-care (POC) analysis. In particular, we modify commercially available screen-printed electrodes for use in electrochemical surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (EC-SERS) sensing.

MULTIDIMENSIONAL SERS

We are interested in developing multidimensional surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) substrates which have inherent order over 2- and 3- dimensions.
