Dr. Nicolas Briot
Post-Doctoral Scholar. Research interests include electron microscopy techniques and materials characterization; the fabrication and mechanical testing of nanoporous metals; mechanical behavior of ion irradiated nanostructured metals.
Doctoral candidate in materials engineering focused on incorporating nanoporous metallic films into metal-polymer composite membrane systems. Co-advised by Dr. Dibakar Bhattacharyya. Past projects include dispenser cathode studies.
My current focus is understanding emission properties of tungsten-based dispenser cathodes that have potential applications in microwave amplification devices. In addition, I have worked with porous silicon thin films and characterized them with SEM, TEM, XPS, EDS and nanoindentation.
PhD candidate in Materials Science and Engineering. My current research focuses on thin film combinatorial approach to screen composition and properties of high entropy alloys. My other research interests includes: materials characterization via electron microscopy, mechanical behavior analysis of materials and alloy development techniques.
My research is focused on materials characterization, in particular for scandate cathodes, and transmission electron microscopy. Prior to joining this group, I did my bachelors and masters in Materials Engineering at Central South University, China.
PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering with research focused on the micro-structure and properties of High Entropy Alloys.
Taohid Bin Nur Tuhser
