Welcome to the Nano- and Microstructure Materials Group Website
Materials Science and Engineering/Mechanical Engineering
Cockrell School of Engineering
University of Texas at Austin

We are engaged in the development and study of materials processing routes for tuning the nano- and micro-scale features of films and bulk materials.  By controlling the nanostructure and microstructure, our goal is to produce materials with superior physical and mechanical properties.  We currently are conducting research on 
  • Ultra High Velocity Aerosol Deposition to Produce Thick Films
  • Low Temperature Sintering of Nanoparticulate Films
  • Microconfigured Composites for Extreme Damping
  • 3D Printing by Direct Metal Deposition
