Nanotechnology

Haim Grebel, PhD, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology, is the director of the Electronic Imaging Center and a member of the Materials Science and Engineering Program at NJIT.  Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Office and the Navy, Dr. Grebel’s research focuses on artificial structures at the micron and nano-scales.

In particular, his current interests are in the linear and nonlinear electromagnetic properties of sub-wavelength structures, meta-structures (structures exhibiting negative refractive index) and exploring the properties of structures at the nanoscale. On the latter, his group effort concentrates on optoelectronic elements consisting of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) channels (eg., CNT transistors), graphene – monolayer thick carbon crystal (e.g., graphene based photo-transistors), and novel bio-sensors (e.g., optical detection of flu viruses).

Dr. Grebel is NJIT's 2011 Research Prize and Medal Recipient.
