CURRENT RESEARCH:

Major research thrust is directed towards 1.) developing basic understanding of the mechanics and physics which govern processes used to create ultraprecision surfaces and thin films, and 2.) investigating the mechanical, chemical, electrical and photonic nature of the surfaces which result. Studies have focused on the creation of ultraprecision surfaces and thin films by mechanical and chemomechanical polishing, nanometric cutting, ultraprecision machining, photoelectrochemical etching, sol-gel deposition, laser recrystallization and ion beam modification. The principal techniques used to probe the nature of the surface are ion backscattering spectroscopy, nanoindentation, luminescence spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and various scanning probe microscopies.

Past and present funded collaborations include programs with Los Alamos National Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Eagle-Picher Industries, MIT, University of North Carolina, Politecnico di Milano, Università degli Studi di Roma, Universität Bremen and RWTH Aachen. Currently, our Germany-USA Transregional Collaborative Research Center on the Replication of Complex Optics involving Universität Bremen and RWTH Aachen is jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
