Princeton Teams up with NYU to Receive NSF Grant to Create a New Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)

The Focus of the new MRSEC is to develop novel materials through the study of how microscopic particles are arranged and how they may be controlled. The Princeton team is led by Salvatore Torquato a Professor of Chemistry and the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) and the recent recipient of the APS David Adler lectureship award in the field of Material Physics. Torquato will work closely with Paul Steinhart a Professor of Physics and Director of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science to contribute to the theoretical aspects of the project.

The six year, $7.2M NSF grant will help to build Interdisciplinary research groups within the MRSEC by bringing together scientists with expertise in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, colloidal science and synthetic and polymer chemists to improve businesses involved in display products, cosmetics and pharmaceutical firms.
