Fatigue in Silicon

Ongoing
Our objective is to evaluate mechanisms of fatigue in bulk silicon, a material that has been traditionally considered to be immune to degradation of mechanical

Fluid Suspensions and Emulsions

Ongoing
The purpose of this project is to create rheological measurement methods and tools, focused on using minimal fluid volumes, to measure local flow dynamics and

GaN Nanowire Growth

Ongoing
GaN nanowires grown by catalyst-free molecular beam epitaxy have the unique property that most nanowires are completely free of crystalline defects. This

Hierarchical Materials

Ongoing
Nature utilizes a hierarchy of length scales and tiered structure to build lightweight, strong, and tough materials. Engineers look to exploit the advantage of
