Research in the Clayton group investigates the electrical and chemical properties of solid-state ionic conductors as they pertain to energy storage. Synthetic methods emphasize green chemistry, specifically the use of environmentally benign solvents for thin-film deposition. Results from this work explore the fundamental chemistries governing film properties in both single films and multi-layered structures.
