About

The Materials Science program offered by The University of Vermont is an interdisciplinary activity engaged in the application of basic sciences and engineering to understanding the behavior of materials, their development and applications.

Overview

The Materials Science program offered by The University of Vermont is multidisciplinary because it is involved with the physical, mechanical, electrical and chemical properties of materials — mostly solids. It is multidisciplinary also in that it combines the theoretical and experimental capabilities of a variety of disciplines and applies them to the solution of complex scientific and engineering problems.

Specific research topics include:

  • Dynamics of quantum systems with application to nanomaterials
  • Electronic properties of graphene
  • Synthesis and characterization of electronic materials
  • Thin films and microfabrication for use in electronic devices and integrated circuits
  • Electron and X-ray diffraction characterization of electronic and magnetic materials
  • Experimental and theoretical analysis of musculoskeletal structures
  • Biofluid mechanics and transport processes
  • Optimization of mechanical properties of structural materials
  • Polymers and composites
  • Nanostructures
  • Strongly correlated electron systems
