    High quality, cutting-edge science in the areas of materials science

    The Institute for Materials Science (IMS) is the interdisciplinary research and educational center in NSEC focused on fostering the advancement of materials science at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Defining research directions and serving as a focal point for materials research collaboration inside and outside the laboratory are fundamental elements of our mission.

    IMS supports new, cutting-edge science and incubates both long and short-term work to catalyze innovations in materials science, new capabilities, and breakthrough science. This is put into play by hosting, funding, and sponsoring a range of speakers, seminars, colloquia, research, educational opportunities, workshops, conferences, and collaborations.

    • Distinguished Faculty Scholar Program

      This program supports the visit of a faculty member to spend 8 to 12 weeks at Los Alamos National Laboratory together with some of their students.
