UNL Materials Research Science and Engineering Center @ University of Nebraska
The University of Nebraska MRSEC carries out collaborative research on new magnetic structures and materials at the nanometer scale, with the aim of developing fundamental understanding of their properties and related phenomena. Nanomagnetic structures have potential applications in areas such as advanced electronics, computing, data storage, energy production, handheld electronic devices, sensors and medical technologies. The MRSEC fosters interactions with industrial companies to leverage the expected scientific innovations for potential technological advances. As an integral part of the Center, the MRSEC offers interdisciplinary training for the next generation of materials scientists and engineers by providing regional four-year institutions experience and tools to improve their materials science programs and curricula, offering opportunities for middle- and high-school teachers and their students to learn about materials science, and by addressing pre-college segments of the educational pipeline via targeted outreach activities.
