Research Thrusts within the Kelber Group
Current research in the Kelber Group is focused in three areas:
Growth of nitrides and oxynitrides by ALD, sputter deposition and MBE for the study of N/O interactions and their effects on reactivity at the vapor/solid and liquid/solid interfaces. (Collaboration with the D'Souza and Cundari groups).
Chemical and Electronic Structures of Cobalt Oxynitride Films Deposited by NH3 vs. N2 Plasma: Theory vs.
Plasma Modification of Vanadium Oxynitride Surfaces: Characterization by In-situ XPS Experiments and DFT Calculations (submitted)
Surface Chemistry of Solid State Electrodes for Li ion battery applications (in collaboration with Prof. Leela Arava, Wayne St. Univeristy)
In situ x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of lithium carbonate removal from
