Research Interests:

Current research interest in instrumentation utilizes resonant ultrasound spectroscopy and the analysis. Research interests in instrumentation also include surface enhanced Brillouin spectroscopy, Brillouin light scattering, Marx oscillator, pulse-echo superposition, pulse excitation, and electromagnetic resonance.

Current research interests in physical properties include medical device reliability and MEMS-based material applications to harsh environments. Research interests also include physical and mechanical properties such as strengths of materials, elastic constants, internal friction, sound velocities, anharmonic properties, mass density, and low temperature physics, surface plasmons, and magnetic properties.

Current research materials include ceramic capacitors, and stainless steels 316L and 302. Research interests in materials also include nanoimprints, nanorods, membranes, graphene, nanotubes, thin films, low-k dielectric materials, magnetic materials, monocrystals, metals and alloys, composites, polymers, semiconductors, superconductors, and piezoelectric materials.
