Welcome to the Arnold group homepage
Prof. Craig B. Arnold and his research group focus on materials processing and fabrication, with applications in energy, optoelelectronics, sensing and nanotechnology.
News and recent publications
Inverted-Rib Chalcogenide Waveguides
Y. Zha, P. T. Lin, L. Kimerling, A. Agarwal, C. B. Arnold, ACS Photonics (2014) demonstrates the microtrench filling method for producing IR waveguides of 1.87 dB/cm propagation loss, which to our knowledge is the lowest among solution-processed waveguides.
Origins of nanostructure in polymer coatings
K. Shepard, C. B. Arnold, R. Priestley, Appl. Phys. Lett. (2013) investigates the effect of two MAPLE parameters, deposition time and target concentration, on the nanoscale morphology of MAPLE deposited PMMA.
Battery capacity fade in off-grid renewables
E. M. Krieger, J. Cannarella, C. B. Arnold, Energy (2013) concludes that LiFePO4 is the best available battery chemistry for use in off-grid renewable energy systems through a long-term aging study of multiple chemistries subjected to stochastic charging profiles.
Modeling surfaces in amorphous thin films
C. Lu, D. Recht, and C. B. Arnold, Phys. Rev. Lett.(2013) develops and presents a generalized model to explain the spatial and temporal evolution of photoinduced surface structure in photosensitive amorphous thin ﬁlms.
Solution processing of chalcogenide glasses
Y. Zha, M. Waldmann, and C. B. Arnold,Opt. Mat. Exp. (2013) reviews the fundamental physics and chemistry in the solution process, along with discussing recent examples of applying the solution method to fabricate high-quality optical and photonic components.
