Program Overview

The purpose of the Materials Working Group is to bring together all research activities at the University of South Florida related to materials research. Since many departments, colleges, and institutes are conducting materials research, this group facilities the transfer of new ideas and permits the maximum utilization of shared resources. This home page serves the important function of helping interested parties in materials related research activities locate expertise at USF, via links to both researcher and research group home pages. In addition, a link indicating some of the capital equipments located on-campus to support these graduate research activities is provided.
