Evanoff lands $35,000 research grant

The Research Corporation for Scientific Advancement awarded a Cottrell College Science Award of $35,000 to David Evanoff, assistant professor of analytical chemistry, to develop new silver nanostructures that, because of their unique interaction with light, may be useful in sensing technologies as well as in organic solar cells and other energy harvesting/conversion devices.

Part of the funding will be used to provide stipends for two WCU undergraduate students to assist with the project during the summer. Evanoff and his students will determine how varying the physical parameters of the nanostructure affects the plasmon resonance modes as well as study the particles’ ability to enhance analyte signals in fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy.
