UVA Home Opila Research Group - Advanced High Temperature Materials


Formed in 2010, the Advanced High Temperature Materials research group is led by Dr. Beth Opila. The group focuses on cutting-edge ceramics, alloys, and coatings exposed to high temperatures and extreme environments such as hypersonic vehicle wing leading edges, combustion engines, and solid-oxide fuel cells. The group aims to investigate the fundamental mechanisms operating at high temperatures through a combination of experimental and characterization techniques.
