Dr. Santiago Solares

 

Dr. Santiago Solares was selected to receive the Department of Energy?s 2012 Early Career Award  for his research project ?Trimodal Tapping Mode Atomic Force Microscopy: Simultaneous 4D Mapping of Conservative and Dissipative Probe-Sample Interactions of Energy-Relevant Materials.?  Dr. Solares is the first faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering to receive the Department of Energy?s Early Career Award, which is in its third year.  Dr. Solares will receive $750,000 to fund his five-year project.  

Dr. Solares was among 68 chosen for the award based on a peer review of about 850 proposals submitted by principal investigators who received a doctorate degree less than 10 years ago.  The Department of Energy provides awards in categories such as Basic Energy Sciences (BES), which selected Dr. Solares?s research.  The goal of this project, which Dr. Solares developed in collaboration with chemical engineering professor Dr. Chunsheng Wang, is to develop multidimensional force spectroscopy methods, which will be used to investigate the real-time degradation of fuel cell and battery materials.  This understanding will be useful for the development of better performing materials and for extending the life of existing materials.
