Check our out most recent paper in Chemistry of Materials

Our most recent paper was recently published in Chemistry of Materials.  Students Pralav Shetty and Runyu Zhang (Braun group) collaborated to develop scalable, economic and thermally stable inverse opal structures through aluminization of electrodeposited Ni.  This work is closely related to our efforts to modify the surface chemistry of structural alloys in the oil and […]

Incoming students interested in SMEE

We are excited to welcome the incoming MatSE graduate class!  Students interested in the SMEE research team, particularly our work on carbonaceous build up on structural alloys or metallic thin films, are encouraged to contact Prof. Krogstad.

Defects in nanocrystalline metals play a big role in unprecedented strength

In a recent publication, authors Gidong Sim (JHU) and Prof. Jessica Krogstad reported a novel metallic alloy that could be a game changer for next generation microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) based on its exceptional strength and thermal stability.  The high density of nanotwins lead to unique interactions between dislocations and other strengthening mechanisms (grain boundary strengthening, solution […]

Congratulations to Pralav

Pralav was recently awarded a fellowship from FMC.  The FMC fellowship provides 1 year of support for masters or doctoral students doing research related to the oil and gas industry.  Congratulations, Pralav!

Congratulations, Megan!

Megan Emigh successfully passed her preliminary exam today!  Her dissertation proposal was entitled: “Influence of a nanotwinned, nanocrystalline microstructure on aging of a Ni-25Mo-8Cr superalloy.” You can find more details about this project here.
