Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Director, Materials Science and Engineering
Ph.D. 2000, Harvard
Research in the Arnold group focuses on laser interactions with materials and kinetics of far-from equilibrium processes. Current projects include laser direct-write and non-traditional patterning of small-scale and flexible structures with particular interest in electrochemical systems such as capacitors or batteries. Other work in the group looks at laser modifications of surfaces, photo-modifiable materials for optical transmission, and adaptive lens techniques for optical tweezing applications.
