Professor, Chemistry

Dr. Cornilsen's research group is investigating structure in the solid state. This structure is of basic scientific and practical import. For example, the properties of semiconductors, heterogenous catalysts, and battery electrodes depend on the molecular or crystallographic structure and bonding as well as the point defect structure. The nonstoichiometry and . . .
