working with materials in lab

Advanced Materials

We are a leader in envisioning, synthesizing and applying advanced materials to create new materials that are not found in the natural world.

Areas of advanced materials innovation at Cornell include computationally designed materials; enhanced functionality through convergence and integration of biological, organic, electronic, and structural materials; self-assembly creation of new materials; and tailoring of interfaces to produce nanocomposites. Cornell is home to four national centers with a focus on advanced materials.
