Materials Science Research
Push your materials past their limits
Understand the structure, know the properties, and then explore ways to process it until you have a material that performs the way you want. The right instruments will help you take your material analysis to the next level and discover the products
Featured categories for materials science research
Nanotechnology focuses on smaller and smaller structures to develop next generation products. It crosses many industries and has proven to be a promising source of many new and advanced materials.
Biomaterials have been around for over 50 years, but there's never been more interest in them than today. Applications continue to abound in the medical and dental arenas, but may stray even as far as the aquaculture of pearls.
Metal permeates nearly every aspect of modern life. This makes metal and metal alloys an important focus for material scientists – if the material can be improved upon, the implications for daily living can be immense.
Researchers are engineering new polymers with novel properties (strength, lightweight, heat resistance, protection, and bioinertia) that enable new products or replace
Information technology has become a way of life. Adapting electronics, photonics and magnetic materials to store more information and deliver it faster can directly impact our daily lives in a significant way.
Finding new ways to provide cleaner energy and pack more power into smaller energy sources, such as batteries and solar cells, is driving the quest to advance today’s portable and renewable energy sources.
Ceramics and glass research has paved the way for products used everyday, from cooktops to fiber optics to cement. Scientists continue to discover new ways of processing these materials to drive modern advances in daily living.
Combining materials such as metals, polymers, and glass into a composite product is a fundamental field of investigation in material science research. Discoveries lead to new products that can change our lives.
