The UW AMIC is soliciting proposals for short-term, collaborative research projects that address a current or anticipated need in advanced materials and/or manufacturing. This year’s theme is on materials science and data.
Working together, University of Wisconsin graduate student, Sachin Muley, and engineers from NCD Technologies have determined optimal recipes for a carbon coating for an industrial application while also furthering research in this area. The 10-month project set out to understand and optimize mechanical properties in amorphous carbon coatings that NCD uses for industrial applications. A paper based on this research is currently in development.
On February 27, the AMIC Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) met in Madison to provide feedback and guidance on the goals and objectives for the AMIC.
Dr. Julie Morasch has joined AMIC as its new Director. Julie brings with her deep experience in nanoscale imaging and mechanical analysis as well as a breadth of understanding of industrial applications. Additionally, she is very knowledgeable of the resources available across the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus and the UW system, more broadly.
