Nanotech, Biochem sensors among UH research projects

Abstract:
From applications in sonar and computers to gas grills and cigarette lighters, one University of Houston chemist is on his way to creating a ‘recipe’ for making ‘better’ material.

Currently, engineers take materials that someone else has made and improve them through processing techniques. P. Shiv Halasyamani, associate professor of chemistry at UH, is creating new compounds to better understand structural nuances that result in superior materials behavior. Halasyamani has been invited to present his research – “Structure-property relationships in new oxide materials: piezoelectric, ferroelectric, and second-harmonic generating characterization” – at the American Chemical Society (ACS) 230th National Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C., Aug. 28 to Sept. 1. More than 12,000 scientists are expected to attend the national meeting.
