The vision of the Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC) is to expand the innovation capacity of our nation’s competitive workforce through the development of novel coating technologies and functionalities enabled by two-dimensional materials.


The Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC) consists of three main sites: Penn State, Rice and Boise State, that possess complementary expertise in different areas of 2D materials.

ATOMIC builds on the robust foundation of scientific innovation in 2D materials at Penn State and Rice University and expands into scalable 2D materials printing enabled by Boise State University.
