To conduct leading international and multidisciplinary research on 2D layered materials aiming at finding new phenomena and applications, that could be transformed into high impact products. The center offers a unique, vertically integrated research education to graduate and undergraduate students, with extremely valuable components including state-of-the-art infrastructure, and research environment.
With the reduction in campus research activities, the Penn State Materials Characterization Lab (MCL) is initiating a FREE webinar series “Making the Best of a Bad Situation: Characterization Seminar Series” to keep users engaged and learning about various analytical techniques. We are partnering with several Big Ten facilities at: the University of Wisconsin, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign to offer 3 webinars per week starting Monday March 30th. These will be held via Zoom on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays at 11:00AM eastern time. For a listing of upcoming webinars and to register (required) visit the MCL webpage at https://www.mri.psu.edu/materials-characterization-lab/webinars

"What could we do with layered structures with just the right layers? What would the properties of materials be if we could really arrange the atoms the way we want them… when we have some control of the arrangement of things on a small scale, we will get an enormously greater range of possible properties that substances can have..."
