Advanced Materials Research Institute (AMRI)


The Advanced Materials Research Institute (AMRI) is a multidisciplinary team that provides a unique environment involving the government, private, and academic sectors in the conception and development of novel research ideas and programs. Our team is comprised of Professors, Postdoctoral Researchers, Graduate and Undergraduate Students, and Visiting Scientists with experience and training in the United States as well as from many countries abroad. The general focus of AMRI researchers is on materials science and nanotechnology, while some particular areas of research currently include nanomagnetism, nanolithographic patterning, and thermal and electrical transport properties of nanoparticles. In support of its research programs, AMRI provides state of the art laboratories and equipment facilities in the Science Building of the University of New Orleans Lakefront Campus.
