Interface and Surface Phenomena

Research concerning the boundary interfaces of materials rather than their internal bulk properties.

Bulk and Defect Properties of Materials

The basis of solar technology, electronics, computing, and other applications. Results find applications in next generation solar cells and fabrication of transistors.

Low-dimensional materials: mechanics and thermal transport

Mechanics at the nanometer length scale forms the foundation of nanotechnology.
