The Nanoscale Science Ph.D. Program is an interdisciplinary program of research and teaching that promotes the understanding, development, and manipulation of structures and phenomena that have nanoscale dimensions. Research and academic work towards earning a Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science addresses the development of materials and processes on the scale of roughly 1-100 nanometers in length, and the study of phenomena that occur on this size scale. The program prepares students to become scholarly, practicing scientists who possess the critical thinking, methodological, and communication skills required to advance and disseminate knowledge of fundamental and applied science in the areas of chemistry, biochemistry, energy materials, optics/spectroscopy, physics, and engineering.

Walter Research Group
Faculty in Focus
Welcome to the Walter Research Group in the Chemistry Department at UNC Charlotte. We are interested in the synthesis and development of new materials for Solar Energy Conversion and fluorescent molecular probes.
Afonin Research Group
The study of RNA has become one of the most prominent areas in modern biology and biomedicine. RNA is now appreciated to function as an enzyme, natural scaffold, and powerful regulator of gene expression.
Bejger Research Group
Research in the Bejger lab is focused on the design, synthesis, and assembly of molecular clusters for energy applications.
