Advanced Design & Manufacturing

Apex Lab

We are an interdisciplinary research group of mechanical engineers, materials scientists, chemists, and physicists. Our mission is to advance the fundamental understanding of heat and charge transport in polymers, to create polymers with improved thermal conductivity and electrical insulation for better micro-electronic cooling, and to create others with improved thermal and electrical conductivity for better energy storage and conversion as well as biomedical temperature imaging, and higher solar cell efficiency.

Nanomaterials

Nanomaterials are materials with at least one of their three dimensions limited to nanometer, that is, a scale that quantum effects emerge. Two-dimensional (2D) materials is a class of nanomaterials with outstanding electrical, mechanical, chemical, and bio-transducing properties. Using methods based on chemical vapor deposition, 2D materials can be prepared in large scale (~ m) and high quality with tunable strength, transparency, disorder density, and electron transport properties.
