SURFI Team 2016/17

New SI Publication

A better understanding of the surface oxide film on biodegradable metals could lead to the design of smarter, surface responsive biodegradable stents with good biocompatibility and controlled degradation rates at different stages of implantation. In our new study, the surface … Read More »

SURFI Team of 2016/17

A new academic year is already in a full swing. The SURFI team has been expanded by a PhD candidate, Mr. Zhiyong Yin, who arrived from Montana Tech in summer. We have also recruited two new undergraduate students, Ms. Morgan … Read More »

Bioabsorbable Stents Bioabsorbable Stents
We search for new biodegradable alloys that could revolutionize cardiovascular stent industry.
Antibacterial Materials Antibacterial Materials
We invented new inexpensive antibacterial material and explore its potential applications in water filtration, food packaging, and many others.
RHX Ceramic Dating RHX Ceramic Dating
We study the rates of rehydration and rehydroxylation processes for fired clay-based ceramics as a tool for dating ceramic archeological artifacts.
Smart Surfaces Smart Surfaces
We architecture nanostructures, nanotubes, and molecular layers to control wetting or other properties of surfaces.
Mineral and Materials Processing Mineral and Materials Processing
We have a long tradition of development and testing physical separation technologies for selective recovery of minerals from ores, plastics from waste, and cellulose fibers from wastepaper.
