Advanced Materials Research Center (AMRI)
Board of Regents Approved
Research Areas: The Advanced Materials Research Institute (AMRI) is a multidisciplinary research institute that provides a unique opportunity to develop novel research ideas that ultimately involve the government, private, and academic sectors in the conception and development of research programs. The interactions with corporate laboratories provide a synergistic pathway that promotes technology transfer and private sector involvement in the operation of AMRI.
Areas of Expertise: The research at AMRI is conducted in groups which specialize in the synthesis, fabrication, testing, characterization, development, and nanotechnology of nanomaterials, nanocomposites, and functional materials for the development of advanced materials for use in industry and defense applications. These groups are: Nanosensors Group, Thermoelectrics Group, MultiFerroics Group, AMRI-Engineering Group, and Outreach Summer Research Programs Group.
Special Research Capabilities: The AMRI research laboratories are located in the Science Building at the University of New Orleans, where 10,000 square feet of ample wet and dry laboratory space and over $10.0 M in specialized scientific research instrumentation is available for our research. The majority of our research is conducted at our AMRI facilities by scientists, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students who are developing and working on their research programs. Some components of the research are conducted in the laboratories of our research collaborators at other academic institutions and industrial laboratories.
