Mukhles Sowwan

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan

Biography

Prof. Mukhles Sowwan is a nanotechnologist and a materials scientist. He is the director of the nanoparticles by design unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University-Okinawa- Japan ( www.oist.jp ). He is also a visiting professor at SLAC National Laboratory , CA, USA. He was a visiting professor at the materials science and engineering department at Stanford University,CA,USA in 2010. Prof. Sowwan’s research interests include study the nucleation and growth kinetics of nanoparticles in the gas phase, and optimization of nanoparticles for particular applications such as: Gas sensing, supported nano-catalysis, biomedical field, and hydrogen storage .

Abstract

In this talk I will address the  design and synthesis of high performance catalytic nanoparticles via magnetron-sputter inert-gas condensation. I will demonstrate that we are able to control the size, chemical composition, microstructure and shape of these nanoparticles for different catalysis applications including methanol oxidation and gas sensing.
