The Sansoz Laboratory conducts fundamental research to understand the small-scale mechanics and physics of nanostructured materials by combining in-situ electron microscopy experiments, state-of-the-art atomistic simulation and materials theory. Our goal is to push the scientific frontiers of mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of nanomaterials to enable advanced applications for extreme environments in energy, aerospace, electronics and neuromorphic computing.
Understanding atom segregation at interfaces to combat failure mechanisms in nanocrystalline alloys
Engineering nanoscale twin defects to create materials with ideal maximum strength and oxidation resistance
Simulating physical transformations in electrically conductive metallic nanowire networks to enable flexible electronics and neuromorphic computing
