Interfacial Multiphysics Lab is focused on advancing Mechanical Raman Spectroscopy (MRS), an analytical experimental method developed by lab members (US Patent 9,778,194, Review of Scientific Instruments 85, 013902 (2014)), to solve important extreme environment operational problems with emphasis on basic research focused on material interfaces and on applied research focused on developing sensing based solutions for working engineers. Specific Problem Solution Areas are:
1. Application of Nanomechanical Raman Spectroscopy and data science in shock research: Here we regular do testing at velocities exceeding few km/sec to understand dynamic deformation of materials.
2. Use of data science for combined edge-cloud solutions for deploying high voltage batteries in sensitive applications: Here we are developing AI/ML and web3.0 solutions for hard deployment scenarios.
3. Frugal Engineering: Here we are focused on an ecosystem of finance and technology partnerships across the world to engage tech transfer at grassroots.
