UNM Center for Micro-Engineered Materials

The UNM Center for Micro-Engineered Materials (UNM CMEM) serves as a focal point for materials science research and education at UNM. The research performed by the UNM CMEM faculty is highly leveraged because of close collaboration with research scientists from Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the Sandia Center for Integrated Nanotechnology (CINT). The mission of UNM CMEM is to provide a focal point for materials science research and education at UNM. We work to develop new interdisciplinary technologies that make the United States more competitive in ceramic science and engineering nanoscience. Our goal is to transfer these technologies to industry in order to foster the development of competitive reproducible ceramic, polymer/ceramic composite and nano materials for advanced high performance systems.

The UNM Center for Micro-Engineered Materials supports the NSF PIRE Program, the NSF REU Program, and the UNM Nanoscience and Microsystems graduate program.
