Composites Design and Manufacturing Laboratory at NCSU
Our overarching mission is to create multifunctional composite materials with unique characteristics and functionalities, and apply them to engineering problems. We seek to understand and exploit the physical characteristics of the complex material system. Our research scope includes the design and synthesis of multifunctional nanocomposites, material characterization, physical property modeling, application in novel devices, and scalable manufacturing with composite materials.
Our current research focuses on the composite materials for optical, photonic, and electromagnetic applications, the multifunctional 3D surfaces emphasizing the interaction with biological systems, additive manufacturing of composites, and printed stretchable electronics.
Graduate and undergraduate students in our laboratory enjoy multidisciplinary research with world-class research facilities in the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network, NCSU Nanofabrication Facility, Analytical Instrumentation Facility, and DOE Argonne National Lab.
Potential graduate students are encouraged to contact Dr. Jon Ryu (email@example.com) and MAE Graduate Office for application information. Potential post-docs and undergraduates can direct their inquires to Dr. Ryu.
