Materials Synthesis and Characterization Center (MaSC)

At MaSC, materials research goes a level deeper. That’s because researchers here not only characterize materials and devices; they synthesize the materials that comprise the devices too.


Reducing the number of catheters needed for diabetes treatment to just one could make a real difference for patients. MaSC may find the way with deep research into flexible electronics and its applications.


Thanks to amorphous oxide transparent semiconductors, the future is bright for the flat-panel displays in our TVs, laptops, mobile phones and more. It’s innovation being pioneered at MaSC.


Sometimes game-changing research demands that you build your own instruments. That’s how MaSC’s multi-function deposition system came to be. By combining electron beam evaporation, sputter deposition and thermal evaporation into one tool, they have the ideal solution for solar cell applications.
