Synthesis and Processing

The emphasis of this Topic is the development of new techniques to synthesize materials with desired microstructure-property relation; to understand the physical phenomena that underpin materials synthesis such as diffusion, nucleation, and phase transitions; and to develop in situ monitoring and diagnostic capabilities. The synthesis of complex thin films, nanoscale materials, composites, coatings are just a part of this comprehensive emphasis.
