Huang?s research interests have focused on in-situ electron microscopy. His current activities center on using a TEM-SPM (including STM, AFM, Nanoindentor) platform to study structure and property correlations of individual nanostructures such as carbon nanotubes, nanowires, and graphene. His specific interests include: 1. Nanomechanics: deformation and strengthening mechanisms of nanomaterials; 2. Nanobattery: using a MEMS-based, TEM compatible platform, and the TEM-SPM platform to study battery process in-situ; 3. Thermal/ Thermoelectric Materials: developing a MEMS platform to enable atomic scale microstructure and thermal/thermoelectric property correlations; 4. Light Emitting Materials: how defects are affecting the physical properties of GaN nanowires and related materials.
