overview

Dr. Seminario's research covers several aspects of nanotechnology such as the analysis, design, and simulation of systems and materials of nanometer dimensions--especially those needed for development and systems for energy, nanosensors and nanoelectronics. Among his recent goals is the design of smaller, cleaner, more efficient and faster devices for energy production and storage as well as for detection of chemical, biological and nuclear agents. He has developed new scenarios for nanodevice architectures using a multiscale and multidisciplinary approach that progresses from the atomistic level to the final product, guided by first principles calculations.
