University of Connecticut School of Engineering Interfaces Engineering Laboratory

The Interfaces Engineering Laboratory focuses on the fabrication of nanorods and thin films, with secondary effort on mechanics and radiation damage of nanostructures. The research involves a combination of physical vapor deposition experiment, chemical vapor deposition experiment, atomistic simulations, and theoretical formulations. Augmenting the materials/mechanics research, the Laboratory also works on the development of simulation methods – including the Response Embedded Atom Method (R-EAM) and the polycrystalline lattice kinetic Monte Carlo method.

Current sponsors of this Laboratory include: Office of Basic Energy Science of US Department of Energy, US Defense Threat Reduction Agency, US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, National Science Foundation, and Connecticut Clean Energy Fund.
