Emilie Ringe's Research in RICE University Explores Intensively Plasmonics, Catalysis, and Alloy


Vancover, BC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2014 -- Being associated with the notable RICE University, Emilie Ringe’s Research now gets new momentum in her current and developing projects is the field of plasmonics, catalysis, and alloys. Holding the position as a team leader in the research group, Emilie Ringe along with her team is working intensively on materials and electron microscopy research which focuses in the identification and characterizing the composition and structural of nanomaterials which plays a key role in controlling sensing, catalysis and Plasmonic light localization. Her team used a wide variety of advanced techniques with a special emphasis on state-of-the-art electron beam spectroscopy, optical techniques, and theoretical modelling.

They further collaborated with a wide dimension of distinguished scientist from within the department, across the campus and also from nationally and internationally for drawing help for their research work. Students who are working in the research group of Emilie Ringe in Houston will get an excellent platform to learn and expertise in electron microscopy and spectroscopy which are highly demandable skills in the current job realm.

Being an assistant professor of Materials Science and Nano engineering and also an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Rice University, Emilie Ringe’s contribution to the research work is cardinal. Professor Emilie Ringe’s research work is driven by her current interest in atomic resolution and three dimensional elemental mapping of alloy nanoparticles.

Talking more about Emilie Ringe, one of the representatives from RICE University stated, “She earned her B.A./M.S. (summa cum laude) as well as her Ph.D. from Northwestern University where she held a Presidential Fellowship. Her M.S. thesis, carried under the supervision of James A. Ibers, is entitled “Structure Determination and Characterization of UCuOP, UCu0.6Sb2 and UFeSe3, Three Uranium Compounds Containing a First Row Transition Metal” and explored the synthesis, crystallography, and conductivity of uranium compounds with an aim at better understanding 3d/5f electron interactions.”
