Grassman Research Group: materials for electronic & photonic applications

Dr. Tyler Grassman's research group focuses on the development, production, and characterization of novel materials and combinations of materials for electronic and photonic applications. Of particular focus is the area of photovoltaics, as well as other clean energy technologies. 

This work encompasses a wide range of research activities, including but not limited to:
  • functional materials epitaxy and epitaxy science
  • heteroepitaxy and dissimilar materials integration
  • metamorphic materials
  • materials characterization and analysis methods
  • microstructure and defect characterization and engineering
  • surface and interface science
  • application and development of electron microscopy techniques
  • first-principles (ab-initio) materials modeling
  • multi-scale integrated computational materials engineering
  • general application of heteroepitaxy and materials integration to electronics and optoelectronics technologies
