Materials Studied

Materials: metal, oxide, polymer

Interfaces: organic/semiconductor, organic/oxide, organic/organic, organic/metal, metal/semiconductor, metal/oxide, liquid/solid, solid/solid

Nanostructured Materials: 0D, 1D, 2D, 3D, nanocomposites

Experimental and Theoretical Methods

X-ray diffraction and scattering, X-ray imaging, X-ray spectroscopy, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, surface science, density functional theory (DFT), continuum modeling, mesoscale modeling, multiscale modeling
