The Laboratory of Engineered Multifunctional Materials and Alloys (LEMMA’s) mission is to gain a fundamental understanding of the structure-property relations in active materials and engineered solids. We strive to play a leading role in technology advancement through applying the fundamentals of materials science and engineering.
LEMMA’s three main focus groups include:
1. Materials Characterization
2. Materials Processing and Manufacturing
3. Design of Multifunctional Material Systems
