Project Title: 
Particle Science and Technology

This group's research is broadly focused on the physics and chemistry governing aerosols (particle- / droplet-laden gas flows). Current work focuses on the application of aerosol technology in advanced manufacturing, as well as in developing new methods to characterize nanoparticle size, shape, and surface properties. Recent projects include:

  • Development of high-throughput supersonic deposition systems for the production of thin films from nanoparticle precursors; MSI is used for fluid dynamics simulations
  • Fundamental investigation into particle formation growth in high temperature and non-equilibrium (plasma) environments; MSI is used for Monte Carlo simulations
  • Application of ion mobility - mass spectrometry (IM-MS) to examine vapor sorption by nanometer scale clusters: MSI is used for molecular dynamics simulations
  • Analysis of electrostatic air pollution collectors; MSI is used for coupled fluid flow-mass transfer and electrostatic calculations
