Materials Science
High degree of involvement with industry, addressing fundamental materials development issues; e.g., high temperature superconductor sensors (squids), tough silicon carbide composites, ultra-hard coatings, crack-path prediction in layered structures, failure mechanism identification in nickel oxide scales (with EPRI), in situ corrosion study of stainless steel (also EPRI). The super-hard (diamond like) coatings can now be applied cost effectively on large objects (see UFTO Flash 3/21/95).
