Program Highlights

NUE-UNIQUE

Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education- using Nanoscience Instrumentation for Quality Undergraduate Education

Molecular Biomimetics

Molecular Biomimetics is an emerging multidisciplinary research area in which genetically selected and designed inorganic-binding peptides are utilized as building blocks, i.e., molecular synthesizers, erectors, and assemblers, in forming functional nanomaterials for implementation in technology and medicine.

Chip Breakthrough Technology

A collaboration between researcher supported by the DOE and NSF-MRSEC's at UC Santa Barbara and UMASS Amherst, and IBM has led to a revolutionary chip breakthrough that pr

Self-Assembled Nanocrystal Membranes

Close-packed nanocrystal monolayers can be self-assembled by simple drop casting into ultra-thin free-standing membranes.

Generating well-defined gradients of adhesion molecules for the attachment of cells

The Ismagilov and Mrksich groups at the University of Chicago MRSEC have recently established that a microfluidic system utilized in conjunction with surface immobilization chemistries can be used to pattern surfaces with well-defined gradients of adhesion molecules for the attachment of cells.

Fine Print: New Technique Allows Fast Printing of Microscopic Electronics

While electronics have become much smaller and more powerful, an elusive goal has been to "print" these tiny devices rapidly over very large areas.While electronics have become much smaller and more powerful, an elusive goal has been to "print" thes

New Initiatives in PCCM REU Program

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials has run a highly successful Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program for over a decade.
