SEMINAR: Measurements of Ion and Water Transport In Ultrathin Polyamide Membranes

Dr. Stafford leads a project that focuses primarily on thin film composite membranes, where the selective layer that separates water from dissolved ions is only 10s to a few 100s nm thick. Probing the structure and dynamics of such thin layers is a significant measurement challenge. Providing industry with the measurement tools and proficiency will enable scientists and engineers to design more selective and energy-efficient membranes. Chris was recently elected as an APS Fellow. See NIST announcement, and also recently elected as an ACS PMSE Division Fellow. See NIST announcement.
