Governor’s Chair for Radiation Effects on Materials
William Weber is an internationally recognized leader and expert on the interaction of nuclear radiation and charged particle beams with solids.
His work primarily focuses on the use of ion beams to conduct fundamental studies of radiation effects in materials to structurally modify materials for advanced technologies and to perform accelerated testing of materials for extreme radiation environments.
He serves as director of the Ion Beam Materials Laboratory, a research partnership between UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory that provides unique new capabilities available to the UT and ORNL scientific community, as well as other research and development organizations.
