UH-Department of Defense Research Conference
Nov. 13
University of Houston
Hilton Hotel and Conference Center

Learn how to navigate the U.S. Department of Defense – and get your research projects funded – at the third UH-Department of Defense Research Conference. You’ll have the opportunity to make connections with key players at the various organizations within the agency and find out how your expertise can meet immediate and future needs of the U.S. armed services, service members and veterans.

Mission

To explore advanced materials – such as applied electromagnetics, superconducting materials and devices, semiconductors, and advanced oxide films; nano-materials – such as nano-thin films, nano-mechanics, nano-magnetic materials and nano-system manufacturing; and structural materials — such as ceramics, composites, well logging, roads, and subsurface sensing.

Members

The
faculty members in this cluster realize that it sometimes takes many small steps to reach big potential. They study the super tiny with monumental space and energy applications. They investigate the relationship between the structure of materials at the atomic or molecular scale and their macroscopic properties. They find solutions through the study of chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, ceramics, metallurgy and biomaterials.

Programs and Centers

The Nano-Materials research cluster is made up of three broad areas of materials study: nano, structural and advanced. The cluster, which plays an important role in the university’s Strategic Energy Alliance, health initiatives and space exploration efforts, includes multiple materials centers and institutes that draw on the expertise of researchers from both the Cullen College of Engineering and the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
