The new Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM) opens on the Infinite Corridor today.
This lab is a shared facility for researchers from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering to pursue joint projects in interdisciplinary areas. The LAM houses characterization and processing equipment and enables research groups to work together on new materials and processes for cross-cutting materials applications in challenging areas such as energy and the environment.
The LAM is the third in a series of renovation projects at the eastern end of the Infinite Corridor in the Main Group that have created public-facing materials science and engineering laboratories. The first two of these projects — the NanoLab and the UnderGraduate Teaching Laboratory — replaced cinderblock walls, cork-boards, and closed doors with frosted glass windows with floor-to-ceiling glass walls through which casual passersby could see researchers and students at work.
