Welcome to the home page of the Eisaman lab
at Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Lab.

Our research is highly interdisciplinary and seeks to understand, invent, and deploy new applications of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials.  Current areas of interest include graphene devices and nanotechnology applied to photovoltaics.  Our work spans from fundamental questions to applied challenges of implementation and scaling. Our research sits at the intersection of multiple fields, including physics, electrical engineering, materials science, and chemistry.

We're hiring! The group is recruiting a new Ph.D. student and Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a highly interdisciplinary project that seeks to understand, invent, and deploy new optoelectronic applications of graphene. Click here for more details.
