The Maryland MRSEC (http://mrsec.umd.edu) carries out nationally recognized fundamental research on surfaces and interfaces of materials with potential impact on the next generation of opto- and nano-electronic devices, and on complex oxides with potential applications in memory, switches and sensors. The research is closely integrated with a continuing educational outreach program that has a direct impact on the education of a diverse population of K ? 12 students and teachers. Two specific research thrusts are supported as interdisciplinary research groups (IRGs) in the center, as well as additional ?Seed programs? in which young faculty develop new and exciting research directions. IRG 1 Low-Dimensional Interfaces (Leader: Ellen Williams) The goal of this research program is to understand and exploit the special statistical and low-dimensional characteristics of junctions between ultra-thin films of electro-optic and nano-electronic materials to create novel device properties. IRG 2 Multifunctional Magnetic Oxides (Leader: Dennis Drew) This IRG uses state of the art growth techniques, a comprehensive range of characterization tools and advanced theoretical analysis to understand the fundamental processes in multiferroic magnetic oxides, and develops and tests device concepts for their exploitation. 2005-2007 Seed programs Diffusion and Wettability in Porous Nanoparticles: (Douglas English, Sheryl Ehrman, Lyle Isaacs and Michael Zachariah) Template Synthesis of Nanowire / Nanotube Heterostructures (Sang Bok Lee) Spin and spin coherence dynamics of tunable electrochemically synthesized nanostructures (Min Ouyang)
