Northwestern University Materials Research Science and Engineering Center

The Northwestern University Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (NU-MRSEC) is a cross-disciplinary enterprise built on existing institutional strengths, which will support innovative, leading-edge research an education, and by addressing fundamental nanoscale materials science and engineering issues, benefit our society and the global community.  NU-MRSEC understands, creates and develops materials with new properties by combining different organic and inorganic materials into nanoscale hybrids where charge and energy transfer might be controlled independently (IRG 1), by combining different elements to create oxide materials that are both transparent and conducting (IRG 2), and by controlling the size and shape of nanoparticles with precision to engineer interactions with light (IRG 3). Applications of such materials would include new information processing capabilities, high performance electronic devices that are both flexible and transparent and new sensing technologies.
