Research Centers

The NSF-sponsored Wisconsin Materials Research Science and Engineering Center brings together teams of researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to address a critical void in knowledge involving disordered materials, and the emergence of order from disordered materials. The Center integrates the discovery of new knowledge with creation of research-inspired educational materials, innovative programs that broaden participation in STEM fields, industry outreach to promote economic advancement, and professional development opportunities that train the next-generation US workforce.

The UW AMIC acknowledges the past support of the students and faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center on Templated Synthesis and Assembly at the Nanoscale. This center was active from 2004 – 2014, funded by the National Science Foundation, and addressed grand challenges associated with directed assembly of nanoscale materials into functional systems and architectures through the use of self-assembly, chemical patterning, and external fields.
