Extensive Capabilities for Research, Development, and Materials Quality Control

The Nanomaterials Core Characterization Facility (NCC) is an open access, nationally ranked, collaborative materials analysis multi-user facility where researchers from various universities and industries have access to the capabilities of our state-of-the-art instrumentation and expert advice.

The NCC offers technologies that benefit multi-disciplinary industrial and scholarly research in a broad range of sciences including, but not limited to: regenerative medicine, biotechnology, biology, forensic science, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, materials science, aerospace, and microelectronics.

In a collaborative effort between the VCU College of Humanities and Sciences and the VCU College of Engineering, the NCC also provides a conduit for scientists and industry specialists to bridge their research.

Other capabilities in the NCC lab include surface wettability measuring by using contact angle, as well as the capability to measure heat capacity, magnetic and electrical properties as a function of temperature and magnetic field.
