Energy Expertise: 

​The theme of Sue Babcock's research is structure-property relationships for solid-solid interfaces. Her work is focused on interfaces and defect structures in engineered substrates for growth of large-lattice mismatched compound semiconductors like gallium nitride (GaN). Babcock's research group uses very high spatial resolution techniques for composition and structure determinations with a focus on high resolution imaging and analytical transmission and scanning transmission electron microscopy.
