IRG1 - Designing Functionality into Layered Ferroics

IRG2 - Powered Motion at the Nanoscale

IRG 3 - High-Pressure Enabled Electronic Metalattices

IRG 4 - Multicomponent Assemblies for Collective Function

Graduate students who participate in MRSEC research also engage in a variety of professional development, outreach, education, and community building activities.

Interdisciplinary Research Groups

Currently the Center is composed of four (4) Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRG). Common themes of complex materials synthesis and length scale dependent physical phenomena permeate all four of the IRGs. These research themes are integrated with major efforts in educational and industrial outreach.
