Advanced Manufacturing Processes Laboratory

Advanced Manufacturing Processes Lab equipmentThe advanced manufacturing processes group conducts a variety of state-of-the-art research, including ultra-precision machining, finishing of advanced ceramics by magnetic field assisted polishing, diamond coatings on cutting tools for wear resistance, alternate multiple nanocoatings of hard/lubricating, hard/tough materials on cutting tools for wear resistance by excimer pulse laser deposition, synthesis of nanotubes, micromachining of silicon, glass, and polymers using an excimer laser, molecular dynamics/Monte Carlo simulations of nanometric cutting, nanometric testing, and tribology; high-speed machining, thermal aspects (experimental, analytical, and numerical simulations) of various manufacturing processes, multi-scale simulations from atomistic to continuum, chemo mechanical planairzation of silicon wafers, and fundamentals of welding. A multi-million state-of-the-art research facility is established to address these and other challenging problems.
