Welcome to the interfacial Mechanics Laboratory (iMeLab)



Materials interact with their surroundings primarily through their surfaces. Surfaces and interfaces are the places where a substantial degree of energy dissipation, structural instabilities, and other interesting mechanical phenomena take place.


Our group focuses on understanding how surfaces interact at different length scales and under various conditions.


We believe that bridging the interfacial mechanical behavior at different length scales by combining modern experimental techniques with atomistic simulations as well as multi-scale modeling would lead to novel or improved design of advanced materials, more reliable structures, and, eventually, consistent and physically-meaningful theories.
