CRISP’s basic research aim is to discover and develop novel materials that have been engineered at the scale of individual atoms. To this end, CRISP has two interdisciplinary research groups (IRGs).
IRG1: focuses on characterizing, designing, and controlling the novel chemical, electronic, and magnetic properties that arise at complex oxide interfaces.
IRG2: focuses on developing new bulk metallic glasses and advancing the fundamental understanding of their behavior which in turn will enable surface property engineering through multi-scale patterning. The research in the two IRGs will advance a wide range of technologies spanning computation, communication, energy, and medical applications.
