Princeton University is one of the premier locations world-wide for materials science and education due to its unique integration of long-term, curiosity-driven research and high-impact innovation and engagement with industry.
At the center of this work is the Princeton Materials Institute. Research at the Institute pushes the boundaries of not only the performance of new materials but the fundamental knowledge that underlies future advances. We integrate academia and industry and educate the next generation of leaders in the field. We facilitate this work with world-class facilities for imaging and fabrication and deep expertise in characterizing and manipulating materials at molecular and atomic scales.
