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

April 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


University of Kentucky Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering Spring 2019 Seminar Series

A Joint Seminar with the UK Center of Membrane Sciences

Christopher M. Stafford, PhD
Material Science and Engineering Division National Institute of Standards Technology

April 17, 2019
11:00 AM

323 RMB (Robotics and Manufacturing Building)


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.
