Rankin Group News

Welcome to the Rankin group web site.  We study the synthesis and application of nanostructured materials and interfaces using a wide variety of characterization tools including spectrocsopy, electron microscopy, x-ray scattering and diffraction, and surface analysis techniques.  We also use a variety of modeling techniques from density functional theory to Monte Carlo simulations to finite difference calculations to understand systems of interest to us.  Please follow the links above to navigate this site.
