Biography

C. Austen Angell is a Regents’ Professor at Arizona State University. He has worked mostly on liquids and glasses, but has also published on geochemical, biophysical and battery electrolyte problems. He currently has a major effort in the energy storage and conversion disciplines. He has 520 publications, 78 cited >100x, 6 >1000x (H index 88). He has been elected chair of three different Gordon Conferences: four different Societies have given him their internationally contested awards (ACERS Morey 1989, ACS Hildebrand 2004, MRS Turnbull 2006, ECS Bredig 2010, ACERS Cooper Scholar 2015, respectively). He is proud of an “Outstanding reviewer” award, APS 2009. He was recently honored as University College London's Bragg lecturer 2015).

Professor Angell holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of Melbourne, Australia, and a Ph.D. degree from London University, Imperial College, where he won the Armstrong medal for 1959-61. He taught at Melbourne University 1962-64, then postdoced at Argonne National Laboratory 1964-66 before joining Purdue University where he became full professor in 1971. He joined ASU In 1989.

Research Interests

In this group, a wide range of physical measurements on liquid structure, transport properties and thermodynamic characteristics are carried out, with emphasis on metastable (supercooled, superpressurized) or stretched state behavior. One branch of this program focuses attention on microsample techniques for studying the physical properties of supercooled and stretched (negative pressure) states of common molecular liquids such as H2O, benzene, and CCl4, which normally can only be studied above their melting points. At the other extreme, computer simulation studies using sophisticated multicomponent molecular dynamics programs are used to study liquid silicates and glasses under extreme conditions: also the stability limits of crystalline materials on compression and stretching.

A major component of the group's research at the moment involves synthesis and characterization of new, highly stable, electrolytes and polymers for applications in electrochemical power systems and the study of biophysical phenonena. The group has a number of patents granted or pending in these areas.

Most recently, the group has become involved in polyamorphic phase transitions and the relations between unexpected phase transitions in supercooled liquid water and major structural changes in biopolymers (see article in Science 1995). For information on current research on biopolymers and other activities, please check out titles below and our current abstracts on the lab Website--you will need Adobe Acrobat, or equivalent to read these.
