Phase equilibrium relationships in technically important ceramic oxide systems for communications, energy, medical, and optoelectronic applications
Inorganic non-molecular solid-state chemistry with emphasis on crystal chemistry and the interdependence of crystal structure, chemical composition, and physical properties
Postdoctoral Research Opportunities
Knowledge of phase relationships and the structures of phases is essential for developing structure-property relationships of advanced materials and for optimizing the processing of materials to minimize cost while controlling useful properties. This research opportunity involves experimental measurement of phase equilibrium relationships in complex oxide systems of interest for electronic or other functional properties. Studies focus on ceramic systems pertinent to critically enabling materials for technologies such as communications, energy, medical, and optoelectronic. The technical approach includes synthesis and characterization using X-ray and other diffraction methods. For more information...
