Facility Details

Teaching and research facilities of the Materials Science program are primarily located in Cook Physical Sciences Building (Physics, Chemistry) and Votey Hall (Electrical and Mechanical Engineering). Votey and Cook are adjacent to one another and are located on the central campus of UVM.

Many of the faculty in the Materials Science Program have developed individual laboratories to conduct their chosen research topics. In those laboratories the capabilities to perform a variety of experimental investigations including thin film growth, polymer studies, nondestructive studies, micromechanical measurements, and chemical synthesis have been developed. The Materials Science Program shares the Chemistry Department Facilities and Microscopy Imaging Center. Individual departments also maintain user laboratories which include the sophisticated characterization facilities listed below.

Light Scattering
Small-Angle Neutron Scattering
X-ray Diffraction and Scattering
Material Processing
Micromechanical Force Measurements
Noninvasive Ultrasonic Imaging
Thermal Analysis
