Ceramic and Composite Materials Center

The Ceramic and Composite Materials Center (CCMC) is a multiuniversity cooperative research center among The University of New Mexico (UNM), Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (Rutgers) and Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). It is part of the NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers Program. The CCMC constitutes the amalgamation of three pre-existing I/UCRCs, the UNM Center for Micro-Engineered Materials, the Rutgers Center for Ceramic Research and the Penn State Particulate Materials Center. It is jointly supported by industry, the State of New Mexico, the National Science Foundation (NSF), UNM, Rutgers and Penn State.

The CCMC combines the ceramic processing expertise of the Rutgers researchers, the expertise of the UNM researchers in the chemical synthesis of ceramic and related materials and the Penn State expertise in the synthesis and processing of particulate materials. It functions as a complete ceramic science and engineering center with extreme versatility in developing synthesis and processing systems for powders at all length scales. It has the capability and goal to develop leading edge ceramic, polymer/ceramic composite and nano materials and processes to improve the technical base that is needed by companies to compete successfully in the global marketplace
