The Reinke Group research lab is interested in a wide range of materials as templates for nanostructures and oxidation and corrosion of alloys, such as NiCr and Mo-silicides. We work with 2D materials graphene and MoS2 and the curious and novel nanospheres which form when fullerenes are heated on metal surfaces. We are also investigating a process which is poorly understood: the oxidation of Mo-silicides where a complex dance between oxide sublimation and oxide formation with SI leads to the formation of geometrically complex structures. This is new for us, so stay tuned for developments!
