Professional Summary

Dr. Aindow is the Associate Director of the Institute of Materials Science. The emphasis of Dr. Aindow’s current programs is on microstructural development in a variety of engineering materials. The main approach is the use of advanced electron microscopy techniques to reveal the microstructural details that dictate the behavior of materials. These projects include: conductive oxide coatings for solid oxide fuel cell interconnects (NSF/United Technologies Research Center); metals and alloys for electrical circuit breaker applications (GE Energy – Industrial Solutions); electroplated cobalt-phosphorus coatings as replacements for hard chrome (US Chrome); dual mode intermediate temperature fuel cell: liquid fuels and electricity (Fuel Cell Energy/ARPA-E).
