250V Harker ISE Laboratory
W. M. Keck Center for Advanced Microscopy and Microanalysis
Dr. Ni`s general research interest centers on the characterization of novel structures and composites using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Expertise includes electron crystallography and e-beam associated spectroscopy. Active efforts are on the process-structure-property relationships of advanced composites, porous mesocrystals, functionalized nanostructures and assemblies, thin films and epitaxial growths with special emphasis on multifunctional composites and materials for mechanical, energy, and environmental applications.
