Summary of Activities/Interests

The interests of our research group lie in the connections between the synthesis, processing and structure of materials and their performance. In particular, directed research programs in corrosion inhibition of aluminum alloys has lead to a family of environmentally benign corrosion inhibitors that self-catalyze protective film growth and significantly improve corrosion resistance. Electrochemical methods are used to fabricate ordered templates with nano-meter sized features directly on silicon wafers for use in the fabrication of sensitive IR detectors and selective bacterial sensors. Other electrochemical studies of pulsed plated and photochemically produced catalysts and carbon nano-tube coated gas diffusion layers have yielded very effective PEM fuel cell electrodes.
