The Maria Group specializes in the design, development, and synthesis of novel electronic, ceramic, plasmonic, and refractory materials. While our group works with thin films, powders, and bulk ceramics, most of the laboratory activities are based on physical vapor deposition. We have particularly interest in molecular beam epitaxy, laser ablation, magnetron sputtering, and e-beam evaporation. Understanding, discovering, and improving the science of material synthesis is the cornerstone of our group’s work.
