With the support of AFOSR-DURIP, an X-ray powder Diffractometer model Bruker D8 Advance thetatheta system has been purchased, installed and put into use now. The instrument has brought great impact iii both research and education on campus. A large number of new materials has been synthesized and characterized with the newly installed instrument. The properties of these new compounds as efficient thermoelectric materials are currently being evaluated. Synthetic, structural, and preliminary property descriptions of these novel materials have been reported in publications acknowledging the support of AFOSR-DURIP. A summary of research and educational activities, major finding, and the plan of current and future uses of the instrument is given here.
