Rutgers has an extensive range of materials science programs underway employing a wide array of facilities for materials characterization, synthesis and processing.
Objectives of the research programs include new materials for energy applications, such as photovoltaics, new semiconductor structures associated with future transistor technology, specialized devices for high temperature and high voltage applications, advanced batteries and fuel cells, hydrogen containing materials, new catalytic structures, complex ferroelectrics, etc.
Associated with these studies there is a wide range of analytical tools for characterization and for synthesis. Often these are one of a kind, expensive tools unavailable to small businesses and institutions. Our facilities are open to users both inside and outside the university. A partial list of available equipment and typical usage rates is available. Each of these analytical instruments is administered by a knowledgeable faculty member able to advise on appropriate use and application.
This instrumentation is housed within the facilities of the Materials Science and Engineering Department, the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, the Laboratory for Surface Modification, the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Most of the facilities are connected with the Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology (IAMDN). The complexity of the University structure and the breadth of interdisciplinary materials science can result in a difficult path to find solutions to materials problems. Therefore Rutgers has initiated a central office to provide “one stop shopping” for industry users. Your first contact is: David Sadowski, Associate Director, Office of Research Alliances, CoRE Building, Room 718, phone: 732-445-3344, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Capabilities are constantly being up-graded, so personal contact is a desirable and informative way to begin making use of this world–class instrumentation.
We look forward to working with you!
