Clarkson University's Sokolov to Speak About Nanostructured Silica Colloids at NanoTech 2008 in Boston
Potsdam, NY | Posted on April 18th, 2008
Sokolov is one of eight speakers who will present to 4, 000 attendees and 400 exhibitors in the Nanoparticles in Soft Materials - Colloidal Systems symposium, one of the fastest growing areas of the nanotech conferences. Other invited lectures are presented by leading experts in their respective fields.
Sokolov will discuss " Self-Assembly of Nanoporous Silica Colloids: from Fundamentals to Applications." Self-assembly is viewed as the most attractive approach in building nanostructures. Nanoporous silica particles are the micron-size particles (about 1/10th of a human hair), which have nanometer-size channels (1 nanometer is one-billionth of a meter). These particles are useful for various sensing, photonic, and catalytic applications. The study of the assembly mechanism can contribute a new way of thinking about synthesis of materials over length scales of tens of microns that is typically outside of the range of solid state science. The results of this research can also provide a vital link to understanding the growth of biological objects.
Sokolov joined the faculty at Clarkson University in 2000. He is a professor of physics, has appointments in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science and Clarkson's Center for Advanced Material Processing (CAMP), and is the director of NanoBio Laboratory (NABLAB), an interdisciplinary research center focused on the study and fabrication of materials and biomaterials on a nanoscale.
His research focuses on developing methods for controlling the architecture of self-assembled materials with structural features on nanoscale, and utilizing such materials for physical, chemical, and biological sensing, drug delivery, optics, development of composite materials with improved properties, etc.
Sokolov received his doctoral degree in physics from the Soviet Bureau of Standards (Russian NIST), in 1991. He is a member of the American Physical Society, American Chemical Society, Material Research Society, American Biophysical Society, and American Association of Mechanical Engineers. He has authored about 100 refereed publications, has filed 18 patents, delivered 67 invited lectures, seminars, conference presentations; and participated in 64 conferences with contributed presentations. He is an active consultant with several major pharmaceutical and chemical companies.
