Welcome to the Gupta Research Group at NC State, The Corrosion and Advanced Materials laboratory! At CAML, we focus on advancing the fundamental understanding of the structure-processing-property-performance relationships in metallic materials, passivity, corrosion initiation and propagation mechanisms, and surface electrochemistry using state-of-the-art material characterization and electrochemical techniques. The fundamental research is intended to be applied in developing new metallic materials, corrosion characterization techniques, material processing technologies, and life prediction models. Rajeev’s interdisciplinary research is supported by the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Office of Naval Research, and Industries.
