Solid-State Chemistry at Penn State

Blue Framework Longer.png

The Hodges Research Group is broadly interested in the synthesis and applications of new inorganic solids, with a particular emphasis on microporous oxides, multi-anion materials, metal chalcogenides, intermetallic compounds, and thin-film architectures. Members of the group will learn a variety of synthesis and characterization techniques, and also have opportunities to study the properties of newly discovered compounds. The research programs are designed to impart lab members with skillsets that will translate to a diverse range of career paths. 

The lab will officially open in January 2022! Preparations are underway and we are looking to fill a limited number of positions for students and post-docs who are interested in materials synthesis and solid-state chemistry. Contact Jim to learn about opportunities to join group.
