Welcome to Cao Research Group
Put small stuff together to do big things
Our research group aims to offer advanced materials-based solutions to challenges in everyday life by developing scalable functional material systems and production processes. At the intersection of nanotechnology, materials science, mechanics, and manufacturing, the group is developing a closed-loop research program around advanced materials, covering synthesis, characterizations, device design, and production. Areas of specialty include micro/nanoscale mechanical characterizations, development of scalable assembly processes of advanced structures, and production of advanced materials-based devices and structures.
