Chuang Research Group
Laboratory of Nanoscale Materials
The group has broad interests in nanomechanical characterization and atomistic scale simulations in physical and chemical properties of nanoscale materials.
Synthesis, processing, and mechanical characterization of nano-structured metallic coatings, thin films and nanocomposites.
Atomistic mechanisms of the yielding and plasticity in nano particles, nanowires, nanocrystalline metals and metallic glasses.
Kinetics of grain boundary and triple junctions.
Interaction of nanowires/nano particles/carbon nanotubes and bio-molecules.
