Research – AMRI researchers are involved in a variety of cutting-edge research programs with funding from both the federal and state agencies. The programs are far reaching but many focus on the development of advanced materials and nanotechnologies. Read more.
Scholarship – AMRI researchers are recognized internationally with publications in top journals including Nature, Advanced Materials, Angewandte Chemie, Journal of the American Chemical Society, etc.
Equipment – AMRI has extensive research facilities and welcomes outside users through our FACS program (FACS). We have diverse holdings including an extensive array of magnetic characterization equipment, a Class 100 cleanroom, thin film growth facilities, and a dilution refrigerator unit for achieving coldest temperatures (milliKelvin) in the greater New Orleans area.

Outreach – AMRI has many outreach efforts. Possibly best known among these is our summer research program that involves high school and undergraduate students and high school teachers. Read more.
Teaching – AMRI faculty teach courses in both the College of Science and Dr. Robert A. Savoie College of Engineering. Courses are presented in Chemistry, Physics and Engineering with an emphasis on various fundamental aspects of these fields as well as topics pertinent to advanced materials and nanotechnology.
AMRI’s tenants are independent start-up companies that rent space in the institute as they collaborate with AMRI faculty and utilize AMRI equipment holdings. Companies have both contracts and joint research grants with AMRI faculty. Excitingly, collaborative research and educational programs, some unrelated to the main thrusts of the faculty and the tenant’s research, naturally develop from the close proximity of AMRI faculty and startup scientists.
