Materials Research Theme: Design, Function and Characterization / Energy and Mechanism

The general theme “Materials: Design, Function and Characterization” is identified as a signature area at Western and involves the synthesis and the characterization of materials for energy conversion, storage and catalysis, the fabrication of optical sensors for high sensitivity optical detection, the  development of advanced spectroscopic techniques (Synchrotron radiation, spectroscopy under extreme conditions, scanning probe microscopies) with the goal to design, optimize and fabricate functional devices. See our Materials: Design, Function and Characterization brochure for more information the types of research being done by our faculty.

The Energy and Mechanism theme affiliates researchers whose interests include chemical kinetics and transport phenomena in chemical, electrochemical, metallurgical, and radiation-induced reactions; environmental studies relevant to industrial processes and nuclear power generation; computer simulations in condensed phase, computational chemistry, and electronic structure theory. See our Energy and Mechanism brochure for more information the types of research being done by our faculty.
