Welcome to the Moridi Research Group at Cornell! Laboratory for advanced materials and manufacturing (LAMM) exploits the intrinsic properties (i.e., rapid solidification, melt pool dynamic, intrinsic heat treatment) as well as flexibility of additive manufacturing (i.e., local or site specific metallurgy and incorporation of nanomaterials) to synthesize novel high performance materials that are specifically designed for additive manufacturing processes.
We also develop/use novel characterization tools (in-situ mechanical testing as well as microstructure, orientation, phase, composition, defect and microstrain mapping) to understand the structure-property relationship in these materials. These characterization techniques are the core of our research to elucidate key micro-mechanisms leading to macroscale mechanical behavior.
