Welcome!

You have found your way to the website for the Valentine research group. Please take a chance to look around and see what we are all about.


Graduate Students

Divider

We are actively looking for motivated graduate students who are interested in tackling challenging problems at the frontier of science and engineering. Those interested should contact Prof. Valentine.


Our Mission

Divider

We are a team of researchers interested in understanding how nanoscale structuring can be used to engineer a material's optical properties. We are focused on using this understanding to develop novel materials for applications such as communications, imaging, optoelectronic devices, photonic circuitry, and solar energy conversion. The lab is under the direction of Prof. Jason Valentine in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Vanderbilt University.
