NANOSTRUCTURED MATERIALS LABS


 


This facility provides state of the art centralized research tools aimed at enabling growth and metrology of nano structured materials with a focus on energy related materials.

The CMSE NanoMat shared facilities focus on the use of nanostructured materials in energy related projects, with an emphasis on photovoltaic structures, batteries, fuel cells, and high efficiency solid-state lighting.

The metrology portion of the facility contains a suite of equipment for testing optical and electrical properties of nanostructured photovoltaics, fuel cells, batteries, and solid-state lighting structures.

The NanoMat Labs provide the first centralized set of research tools on the MIT campus aimed at enabling growth and metrology of nanostructured materials. As a centralized place for conducting research, this facility fosters collaborative interactions, and enables the MIT community to expand its connectivity.
