Florida International University

  • Nanomechanics and Nanotribology Laboratory
    The research mission of the Plasma Forming Laboratory (PFL) at FIU is to develop the conventional thermal spray process into the next generation nano-manufacturing technique for processing virtually any material including bulk nanomaterials, nanocomposites and coatings.
  • Florida International UniversityEngineering Research Institute
    The Advanced Materials Engineering Research Institute [AMERI] provides an open access equipment infrastructure to support materials research and engineering over a broad range of technology and capabilities. The Institute provides analytical instrumentation, materials characterization, and process development laboratories to support faculty and industry in the development and characterization of new materials over the continuum from the nanoscale to bulk materials.

    • Nanofabrication Facility: Advanced Materials – The first centralized facility of its kind in Florida, the Motorola Nanofabrication Research Facility, part of AMERI at FIU, is an open-access initiative in support of nano-scale devices, systems and materials research that encompasses a broad range of technologies and capabilities.
