The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Northwestern University a six-year, $16.2 million grant for support of the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), one of the oldest interdisciplinary research centers in the nation.

The Northwestern center, which integrates educational activities with a scientific research program, is one of six Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers in the nation to successfully renew support from the NSF this fiscal year. Three new MRSECs also received funding.

Founded in 1960, the center now provides to Northwestern scientists and engineers an infrastructure and environment for designing, synthesizing and characterizing transformative new nanoscale materials and for exploring new device concepts.

"The Northwestern University MRSEC has a long tradition of exceptional research, outreach and educational programs," said center director Monica Olvera de la Cruz. "Our efforts have resulted in outstanding contributions to society, which we look forward to enhancing during the new funding cycle of the center."

Olvera de la Cruz is the Lawyer Taylor Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The center's goals include understanding the fundamental principles and behaviors of complex nanomaterials systems, transferring research results into new technologies and industries, and initiating collaborations with national and international partners. In particular, the center has strong collaborative ties with Argonne National Laboratory.

Possible applications of the nanomaterials being studied include new information processing capabilities, high-performance electronic devices that are both flexible and transparent and new sensing technologies.

The center also has introduced art conservation science to the center's research portfolio through collaboration with the Art Institute of Chic
