Overview

MSE faculty conduct a wide range of experimental and theoretical research. Much of the departmental research efforts can be categorized into four established areas of concentration — Electronic Materials, Magnetic Materials, Microstructural Science, and Iron and Steelmaking Research — and three emerging areas of focus — Materials for Energy, Nanomaterials, and Soft Materials. The MSE faculty carry out research in all four areas of the MSE paradigm — Processing, Properties, Structure, Performance — and on all major materials types — Metals, Ceramics, Polymers, and Composites. MSE research covers a broad range of specific topics; specialty areas of research in which several MSE faculty have active programs are given in the table below. To see which faculty are interested in which area, mouse over the appropriate red box. To learn more about the Concentration Areas or Emerging Areas, click on the links in the column on the right. MSE research is carried out both in small groups and as part of large interdisciplinary research centers. Two of these centers are situated in the MSE department (with links in the column on the right): the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) and the Center for Iron and Steel Making Research (CISR). Department faculty and students are also active participants in the following centers: Center for Nano-enabled Device and Energy Technologies, Data Storage Systems Center (DSSC), and Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES).
