Materials research at Penn State took another step forward today (May 18) when Gov. Edward G. Rendell released $40 million in state funding for construction of a new Materials Research Building on the University Park campus. The remaining half of the $80 million estimated building cost will come from University funds.
The new, multi-functional building will centralize shared facilities for materials characterization and testing, nano- and micro-scale fabrication and prototyping and computational design of materials and processes. Primary technical emphasis will be on electronic materials and devices; optical materials and sensors; surfaces, interfaces and coatings; nanoscale science, materials simulation and modeling, and materials synthesis and processing.
