Welcome to the Moridi Research Group at Cornell, a.k.a. the Laboratory for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing! At LAMM, we exploit the intrinsic properties (i.e. rapid solidification, melt pool dynamic, intrinsic heat treatment) as well as the flexibility of additive manufacturing (i.e. local or site specific metallurgy and incorporation of nanomaterials) to synthesize novel high performance materials.
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 form the core of our research to elucidate key micro-mechanisms which in-turn lead to macroscale mechanical behavior.
