Laboratory for Surface and Nanostructure Modification

lab group

Back (L to R) Aaron Dangerfield, Dr. Erika Fuentes, Dr. Kui Tan, Dr. Jean Francois Veyan, Dr. Joseph Klesko, Dr. Charith Nanayakkara.

Front (L to R) Yasiel Cabrera, Anna Rynder, Rezwanur Rahman, Yuzhi Gao, Dr. Sara Rupich, Dr. Yves Chabal, Mila'na Thomas, Dr. Eric Mattson, Sean Dillon, Natis Shafiq.

Our group is interdisciplinary in nature, with collaborations in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and with UT Southwestern Medical School. We have ongoing collaborations with National Laboratories (NIST, BNL, Sandia), with laboratories in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Korea and Japan, and with US industries (TI, Qualcomm, Intel, SAFC Hitech, Air Products). We also have access to the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven Laboratory. Our goal is to develop the synergy necessary for substantial scientific advances in interfacial science and nanoelectronics, and to benefit in the process core US industries and national initiatives of the Department of Energy.

To achieve this goal, our group leverages the strengths of diverse and highly motivated researchers (students, postdocs, research associates, visitors) with complementary expertise and interests. We also interact very closely with all the other research groups of the Materials Science and Engineering located in the Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory.
