College of Staten Island (Profile)
Using natural surfaces as inspiration, the Lyons group fabricates nanoscale materials with unique wetting, catalytic, thermal and/or optical properties. We are especially interested in developing a fundamental understanding of reactions and properties at the solid-liquid-gas interface. We work closely with industry with the goal of transitioning our inventions into industrially relevant innovations; active collaborations include self-cleaning heat reflective cool-roofing materials, biological concentrators and anti-reflective self-cleaning coatings to increase the energy efficiency of photovoltaic panels.
