Profile Summary

Dr. Akilian's areas of expertise include mechanical system design and testing; failure analysis; instrumentation and data acquisition; thin optics; surface metrology including interferometry and systems utilizing Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors; and analytical and finite element analysis (FEA) including stress analysis, thermal analysis, and modal analysis.

Dr. Akilian’s previous work covers a wide range of precision design principles and applications with sub-micron repeatability requirements. She has extensive experience with ceramics, particularly porous ceramics used in precision air bearing, filtration, and high temperature applications. She has also worked with amorphous glasses, particularly on reducing the surface warp of sheet glass used in flat screen technologies, such as plasma screens and liquid crystal displays (LCD).
