Surface Science and Engineering
The study of physical and chemical properties of materials that occurs at the boundary of two phases is called surface science. Surface engineering seeks to control and modify the properties of materials surface to enhance its properties and application. The surface of biomaterials can be engineered for the integration of implant in the body. Silicon surface functionalization for device technology and chemical modification of graphene and other thin film materials develop the next-generation energy and sensing technologies. The dynamic research area focuses on the development and characterization of surface modification techniques.
