Dr. Charlie Cooper has been at Fermilab for more 15 years and received his doctorate at the University of Cincinnati in 2003, focusing on the synthesis, characterization, and use of novel materials and systems for chemical separations. He also received an MBA from the University of Chicago in 2015. He has 10 years of experience in the manufacturing of superconducting radio frequency accelerators for high energy physics experiments. The past 5 years he has spent engaged in application and technology development of electron beam accelerator technology for commercial application. He has expertise in use of electron beams for environmental remediation including a workshop hosted on the topic. He has published papers in the Journal of Membrane Science, IEEE transactions on applied superconductivity, Superconductor Science and Technology, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, Physical Review Accelerators and Beams, Journal of the Electrochemical Society and a patent on accelerator technology. He served on the board of directors of the Chicago Council of Science and Technology and is currently on the executive committee of the accelerator applications division of the American Nuclear Society.
Research in the Long group focuses on the design and controlled synthesis of novel inorganic materials and molecules toward the fundamental understanding of new physical phenomena, with applications in gas storage, molecular separations, conductivity, catalysis, and magnetism. We employ a range of physical methods to analyze and characterize our materials comprehensively, including by gas adsorption analysis, X-ray and neutron diffraction, various spectroscopic techniques, and SQUID magnetometry.

A major focus of research in the Long group is the design and study of metal–organic frameworks—porous, inorganic solids built of metal nodes connected by organic linkers—that are of interest for applications ranging from gas storage and molecular separations to catalysis and battery applications.
