As an undergraduate researcher in the High-Pressure Science and Engineering Center (HiPSEC), I have worked on several in-house experimental systems and instrumentation. My main area of focus is chemical vapor deposition for sample synthesis. Primarily with molybdenum based 2D semi conductors, for high pressure experimentation. Using techniques to coat a single layer of MoS2 directly to diamond surface inside CVD reaction chamber.
- Building Ruby Spectrometers for cryostat cooling and mobile platforms.
- Initial set up and operation of pycnometer.
- Argonne National Laboratory Advanced Photon Source HP-CAT. For High pressure XRD experiments.
