Biographical Note for Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Materials Technology Center. :

The Materials Technology Center was established in 1983 as a result of a high-technology thrust by the state of Illinois. Charged with stimulating materials related research on the campus of SIUC, the center accomplishes this mission through initiating interdisciplinary research in the Colleges of Engineering and Science, disseminating these results, and sponsoring technical seminars. The center encourages research in new areas by administering a competitive grant program that funds start-up projects for faculty entering new areas of materials research and provides technical, administrative and financial support to start-up and established research programs.

The three research focus areas of the Materials Technology Center include: 1) Materials Design by Iterative Computation, Synthesis, and Characterization; 2) Sensors and Biosensors; 3) Energy Storage.

Additional research programs include carbon-carbon composites, catalysis, magnetic materials, alternative and traditional energy structural materials, polymers and polymer matrix composites, chemical vapor deposition and infiltration, and plasma induced deposition techniques, illustrating the diverse nature of materials re­search supported by the center.

Under the guidance of established experts, students associated with MTC receive hands-on training and valuable experience. The total program of the center offers an opportunity for students at all levels of experience to train in the fields of Materials Science and Engineering.
