Research Synopsis:
Dr. Meletis’ research areas are in surface engineering, multifunctional thin films, small-scale materials and material-environment interactions. He has invented novel plasma treatments for surface hardening, modification and producing functionally gradient surface layers.  His group was the first to achieve self-assembling of perovskite-type oxides and metal/ceramic thin films with high aspect ratios. 

His recent work focuses on vacuum and electrolytic plasma-assisted processing for applications spanning from aerospace to bio, multifunctional (electronic, magnetic, tribological, catalytic, bio, etc) nanocomposite thin films, scale effects on material properties, self-assembling in inorganic materials and nanofabrication.  His research has been funded by NSF, NIH, NASA, DOE, SERDP, ARO, DARPA, Lockheed Martin and other federal and industrial sources.
