Functional Inorganic Materials Synthesis Laboratory

Research figures from the lab

The Functional Inorganic Materials Synthesis Laboratory, directed by Anne Stevens Assistant Professor Jill Wenderott, focuses on the realization of inorganic and hybrid materials for energy and environmental applications. Major aims of the lab are informed syntheses of functional materials – with particular interest in photocatalytic mixed anion materials, oxides, and nitrides – using in situ X-ray scattering and microscopy techniques, characterization of novel material properties using a suite of chemical, optical, and structural measurements, and development of thin film deposition approaches for these materials.
