Schroers Lab at Yale University
We are concerned with materials and their structure-processing-property relationship. Our lab is equipped with state of the art experimental equipment, which allows us to develop, synthesize, process, and characterize a wide range of advanced materials including amorphous metals, composites, and foams.
In order to keep up with the ever-increasing demand on materials we are developing effective strategies to develop and characterize (complex) materials. These include combinatorial methods in conjunction with our artificial microstructure approach to encode structural aspects.
As crucial in the materials selection process as materials’ properties are their processability. We are developing processing strategies on the atomic, nano, micron, and macro length scale. In order to achieve multifunctionality we combine these length scales.
Research fields we are active in are metallic glasses, structural materials, nanofabrication, MEMS, energy materials, catalysts, combinatorial materials science, biomaterials, biomimetics, sensors, and green processing.
