Research Expertise: Electronic Materials | Ceramics | Nanostructured Materials

Peter's principal research interests lie in the design and nano-level structure characterization of functional inorganic solids. He is an expert in the synthesis, crystal chemistry, and properties of electronic ceramic materials, and has published seminal papers on the influence of nanoscale atomic ordering on the properties of ceramic resonators used in wireless communications. Peter has also engineered new high response ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials. In his most recent work, Peter discovered the first family of inorganic materials that self assemble into periodic, phase-separated, nano-checkerboard structures.
