Mostafa A. El-Sayed at the Georgic Technology Laser Dynamics Laboratory is the undisputed leader in catalyst scientific research. He has been the most articulate scholar and engineer and the most often cited scholar in describing that different shapes of the same metal create different characteristics of the same materials. More work needs to be done to understand the basic science of nanoparticles before fuel cell catalysts can be made to scale commercially.

Mostafa A. El-Sayed Is The Undisputed Leader In Catalyst Scientific Research Mostafa is the most likely to achieve the scientific break through. The effects of different size nanoparticles are still being investigated. Companies are poised to fund more research with him at the Laser Dynamics Laboratory, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Georgia Institute of Technology to investigate the impact of shape on material characteristics.

Susie Eustis describes the electromagnetic effect of surface oscillation on nanoparticles. One of the interesting things about nano particles that makes them different from other particles is that there is very little interior, the nanoparticle is mostly surface, creating a different READ MORE >
