Materials Synthesis and Characterization Center

Lab Overview

The Materials Synthesis and Characterization (MaSC) Center pulls together world-class faculty researchers, graduate students and industry partners to probe into challenges of all kinds—in everything from magnetics, nanophotonics and flexible electronics to thin-film deposition and vertical transport electronics. 

The lab’s comprehensive portfolio of tools allows researchers to both synthesize and characterize materials and devices for optical and electronic performance.

The approach here lends itself to a win-win-win. Faculty and graduate students gain invaluable experience and exposure. Industry gets better, more cost-effective devices and solutions. And consumers get products that improve quality of life.
