Ultraprecision Surfaces Group
The research efforts of the Ultraprecision Surfaces Group are directed towards
- developing basic understanding of the mechanics and physics which govern processes used to create ultraprecision surfaces and thin films, and
- the investigation of the mechanical, chemical, electrical and photonic nature of the surfaces which result.
The Group utilizes various techniques to probe the nature of surfaces including ion backscattering spectroscopy, nanoindentation, luminescence spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and various scanning probe microscopies.
