Biological systems often possess highly specific recognition capabilities and can rationally control over inorganic material nucleation, phase stabilization, assembly, and pattern formation. The talk will focus on using M13 virus as a versatile, genetic controllable template for generating a complex, highly ordered nanowires, there assembly, and the applications in Li-batteries and photovoltaics: localized surface plasmon enhanced solar cells.
