Nanomaterials (Energy, Biomedical)
- Full Professor
- Holder of the Canada Research Chair in Advanced Functional Nanocomposites (in French)
- Scientific head of the Nanomaterials Chemistry and Advanced Optical Characterization Lab
The research interest of Professor Ma consists in the development of novel, highly functional materials and structures on the nanometer scale targeted at various biomedical and energy applications, such as long-term tracking of biological processes, catalysis and photovoltaics. Specifically, the main thrusts are centered on six topics:
- Synthesis, characterization, surface modification and biomedical applications of highly luminescent and stable nanoparticles, particularly, near infrared-emitting quantum dots
- Investigation of surface chemistry and surface-property relationship of laser fabricated nanoparticles
- Development of novel nano- complexes for the detection of virus cellular trafficking
- Novel solar cells based on the nanohybrids of quantum dots and high-mobility 1-dimensional structures (such as carbon nanotubes and TiO2 nanobelts)
- Design and realization of new high-efficiency, low-cost transition metal nanoparticle catalysts
- Synthesis, characterization, surface modification and biomedical applications of multifunctional nanoparticles, which integrate superparamagnetic and luminescent components into a single nano-architecture
Dr. Ma’s research will contribute to advanced nanomaterials research by developing new synthetic routes leading to highly functional nanoparticles, by gaining more understanding of how structure, size and properties (particularly, superparamagnetic, photophysical and catalytic) are related, by achieving precise control over nanoparticle properties and by exploring exciting applications of nanoparticles in biomedical and energy sectors.
The group of Professor Ma (joined INRS in 2006) publishes in the fields of nanomaterials, solar cells, catalysis, plasmon-enhanced applications, etc. We are interested in i) developing various nanomaterials and nanostructures (e.g., semiconductor quantum dots, transition metal catalytic nanoparticles, metal oxide, plasmonic nanostructures, and nanohybrids), ii) studying their properties and iii) investigating their applications in energy (e.g., solar cell), catalysis (including photocatalysis, water splitting, etc) and biomedical sectors.
