Miguel Jose-Yacaman, Ph.D.
Department Chair in the Physics and Astronomy Department and Institute Faculty Advisory Council Member
My research interests have always been very broad. However, my primary interest has been the structure and properties of nanoparticles including metals, semiconductors, and magnetic materials. I have done research on: synthesis and characterization of new materials most of them nanoparticles, surfaces and interfaces, defects in solids, electron diffraction and imagining theory, quasicrystals, archaeological materials, and catalysis.
