Research Overview

Research activities at the MTL span an extraordinarily broad set of activities. If one were to identify a unifying theme associated with those projects, it would be the system-level interest in micro- and nano technology. The MTL represents a research community, which brings together experimentalists—skilled in materials and technology at the micro- and nano-levels—with circuits/systems researchers to realize  visions for new systems that are enabled by the integration of these disciplines.

The MTL nano/microfabrication facilities also serves as a campus wide resource providing researchers access to a broad array of technologies that can be employed across an enormous breadth of investigation.

Many of the research investigations conducted at the MTL can be viewed by exploring our Annual Report.
