Welcome to RSSEL, the Radiation Surface Science and Engineering Laboratory. We design self-organized nanostructures with directed irradiation synthesis (DIS) and directed plasma nanosynthesis (DPNS) to enable multi-functional and multi-scale properties at surface and interfaces of complex material systems (e.g. natural polymers, high-entropy, resorbable and refractory alloys, ceramics, self-healing materials and biomaterials).
We decipher the process-structure-property and multi-function relationships that result in rational design of complex materials for applications in extreme environments. Our work is focused on tailoring surfaces at the first-layer-of-atoms (FLOA) and interfaces in 2D and 3D systems depending on the specific application.
