Support to expand ongoing efforts in the research areas listed above. Specifically, support for research in nano- composite thin film fabrication through the PIs patented technologies will allow for expansion of current capacity. This, along with support and additional hands-on opportunities for students will allow us to provide additional research-ready graduates prepared to support AFRL priorities. Support to identify involve additional researchers, assistants, and students will significantly expand capacity and subsequent capabilities.
