Dept. of Mats. Sci. & Eng. John Hopkins University
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is internationally recognized for its research in materials synthesis, characterization, nanostructured naterials and thin films, computational materials science, metallic glasses, electronic materials, and nondestructive evaluation.
There are currently three centers associated with the Department. A new interdisciplinary Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Materials, funded by the National Science Foundation, was established in January, 1997. This effort brings together researchers from materials science, physics, and chemical engineering to study the unique electrical and magnetic properties of nanostructures.
