UT departments of Materials Science & Engineering and Physics & Astronomy; ORNL Division of Materials Science & Technology

Atomic-scale dynamics of liquids and gasses; High-temperature superconductivity

The physics of liquids is much less developed than the physics of solids. Takeshi Egami explores new science of liquids and gases using computer simulation (including quantum mechanical calculations) and neutron and synchrotron x-ray scattering experiments.

Egami is currently participating in a number of active collaborations with ORNL scientists, including Department of Energy projects whose fiscal year budgets total more than $2.7 million.

Additionally, Egami has served as Editor for Advances in Physics from 2011 to the present and Divisional Associate Editor in Condensed Matter Physics for Physical Review Letters.
