Ihlefeld's research group specializes in electronic oxide materials; their thin films increase the efficiency of computer chips...
A cross-cutting initiative at UVA Engineering
The Mutlifunctional Materials Integration Initiative aims to reduce, reuse and recycle heat and energy and create new functionalities in many technologies that form the backbone of modern society. Researchers in the School of Engineering and Applied Science collaborate to develop new, advanced and complex materials and devices with a built-in level of energy efficiency and functionality that does not exist today.
The initiative maximizes UVA Engineering's unique, interdisciplinary expertise in building advanced materials, controlling energy and heat, fabricating sensors, reducing corrosion, building biomedical systems and developing advanced manufacturing approaches.
UVA Engineering and Northwestern scientists combine disciplines to tackle the heat problem inherent in making tiny circuits and chips.
$1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s ASCENT program supports their research.
Avik Ghosh joins multi-university initiative to model the physics of materials for infrared opto-electronic systems.
