Synthesis-enabled exploration of uncharted areas of phase space Such compounds are traditionally difficult to synthesize with high purity due to vastly different reactivities of the elements on any scale or are thermally inaccessible. The Akopov group will focus on forming phases by starting with an adaptable yet stable solid-state substrate and reacting it with theContinue reading “Research Directions”

Principal Investigator Georgiy Akopov – Assistant Professor (2022-present) Georgiy got his Ph.D in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2018. He then did a brief postdoc at the Iowa State University (2018-2019) and then moved to Ames National Lab (US DOE) to do independent research as part of the SpeddingContinue reading “Group Members”
