It was funded by Society in Science through the Branco Weiss Fellowship and the National Science Foundation through Harvard MRSEC
The exhibit was the result of a partnership between MRSEC
and Discovery World Museum, Milwaukee.
Invaluable intellectual and financial support were also provided by Penn State University's Department of Chemistry and the Materials, Research, Science, and Engineering Center (MRSEC
Completed in 2004, our new wing is dedicated to coatings research and it is occupied by the Mississippi Polymer Institute, the National Science Foundation sponsored Materials Research and Engineering Center (MRSEC
), and the Thames-Rawlins Research Group.
"The development of active gels represents a water-shed event for the broader materials community," commented Craig Hawker, director of the Materials Research Laboratory at UCSB: an NSF MRSEC
, which provided seed money for their research.
The NSF's Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC
) are a flagship program that supports a national network of centers of excellence in materials research.
DMA data was obtained in the Hudson Mesoscale Instrumentation facility of the Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCNR) with support from the National Science Foundation Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC

Controlling the depth of the silicon carbide template allows the researchers to create these different structures simultaneously, using the same growth process."The same material can be either a conductor or a semiconductor depending on its shape," noted de Heer, who is also a faculty member in Georgia Tech's National Science Foundation-supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC
Assistance from the National Environmental Technology Institute (NETI) and the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC
), University of Massachusetts, Amherst in developing this work is greatly appreciated.
Facility occupants will include the Mississippi Polymer Institute, the National Science Foundation sponsored Materials Research and Engineering Center (MRSEC
) and the Thames Research Group.
Thanks to MRSEC
and CUMIRP at University of Massachusetts for the access to various instruments and equipment used for characterization.
