Research Interests

Mike’s personal research interests include ion-solid interactions, irradiation induced phase transformations, ion irradiation and plasma modification of materials, ion beam analysis of materials, synthesis and properties of high strength nanolayered composites, and surface mechanical properties. Projects in the group include developing highly radiation tolerant materials for nuclear energy applications and study the effects of radiation damage on boron carbide based neutron detectors.
