NJIT professor working with graphene, carbon nanotubes to receive honor
Date:9/7/2011

What do brilliantly colored glass, advanced batteries, and innovative technology for the regulation of brain functions have in common? They are nano-scale structures far smaller than the wavelengths of energy coursing through them in different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, said NJIT Professor Haim Grebel. Investigating how light interacts with a wide range of materials in the world of the amazingly small has occupied much of Grebel's career. Interestingly, this fascination with light tangentially intersects with the career of his father, the late Israeli fine artist Joel Grebel http://web.njit.edu/~grebel/Yoel%20Grebel%20-%20Artist.htm.

NJIT will honor the younger Grebel on Oct. 6, 2011 during the presentation of the fourth New Jersey Institute of Technology Excellence in Research Prize and Medal.

Grebel's work, which has produced four patent awards, more than 90 scholarly papers and more than a dozen invited presentations, has received the support of the Department of Defense, National Science Foundation and NASA. In 2009, the NJIT Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering recognized Grebel with the NJIT Excellence in Research Award.

Grebel's newest research interests glycobiologists, who study sugars and the roles they play in biology. This November, Grebel will be an invited speaker at the Conference of the Society for Glycobiology http://glycomics.scripps.edu/CFG2011Nov.html in Seattle. His talk is entitled "The Detection of Human and Avian Flu Viruses using Graphene-Coated Infrared Platforms."

The deposition of graphene on various substrates and its implications for spectroscopic analysis has long been a focal point of Grebel's work. Graphene, a two-dimensional carbon crystal that is a single atom thick, can be rolled into nanotubes which are one nanometer in
