Faculty: Gell, Maurice
Department: Materials Science & Engineering
Excerpt: Current research is consistent with Dr. Gell’s career professional interests of commercializing laboratory innovations. Ten years ago, the first ceramic coating was prepared by the new Solution Precursor Plasma Spray (SPPS) process. Considerable UConn research & development, with emphasis on the unique microstructural features generated by the SPPS process, has led to the development of […]

Faculty: Gokirmak, Ali
Department: Electrical & Computer Engineering
Excerpt: Nanoelectronics Laboratory at UConn is equipped with electrical characterization tools for semiconductor characterization. We perform temperature dependent measurements on thin films and nano-scale devices using conventional and custom made tools. We also perform electro-thermal and semiconductor device simulations using COMSOL multi-physics and Synopsys Sensaurus. Our main focus has been the electro-thermal processes at small scales […]

Faculty: Hebert, Rainer
Department: Materials Science & Engineering
Excerpt: Rapid solidification processing (RSP) has over the last three decades greatly extended the range of commercial alloys. The deviations from equilibrium during RSP can induce novel phases or microstructures and hence contribute to alloys with improved properties. During additive manufacturing of metallic components cooling rates reach 104 K/s locally and are therefore similar to cooling […]
