Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: James De Yoreo
The aims of the proposed research are to: 1) Determine the structure of the near surface water layer in the confined region between approaching mineral surfaces and determine the impact of electrolytes and bioorganic ligands on that structure, and 2...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Scott Chambers
Complex oxides have the widest range of properties of any class of materials explored to date. However, with many degrees of freedom come many possible outcomes. Consequently, controlled synthesis of oxide materials, and ultimately achieving atomic...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Yingge Du
The overarching goal of this proposal is to understand, predict, and ultimately control ion transport and topotactic phase transition (TPT) processes occurring in structurally ordered transition metal oxide (TMO) thin films. The fundamental science...
