Recognizing that the structural,electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of a material are controlled by the hierarchical order within the material of interest,CML researchers are involved in a number of projects that deal with materials from the near-atomic through macroscopic length scales.
The following links describe the different research activities of the CML at Princeton University.
- Autonomic Self-Healing Materials Using Electric-Field Induced Colloidal Aggregation
- Nanoporous Silica / Piezoelectric Cantilevers for Biosensing Applications
- Neutral pH Catalysis of Silica Condensation
- Hierarchically Structured Self-Assembled Materials
- Deformation Mechanisms in Nacre
- Ceramic/polymer Composite Materials through Stereolithography
- Piezoelectric Microcantilevers
- Chemical Energy Conversion and Power Generation at the Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Scale
Nanoscale Science and Technology
To support the many research activities within the CML, extensive facilities exist both within the CML and affiliated organizations for the processing and characterization of materials. Of particular importance is the Imaging and Analysis Center within the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM), housing a wide variety of microscopy facilities available for materials research at Princeton University.
