Processing and Manufacturing

Expertise in materials science goes well beyond understanding the properties of materials and how those properties can be applied. Materials scientists must also be adept at developing cost-effective techniques to synthesize, process and fabricate advanced materials that can meet the demands of a rapidly changing commercial marketplace. Researchers in Ohio State’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering are dedicated to this mission through a wide variety of programs that include:

  • Semiconductor process modeling
  • Phase transformation
  • Ceramic-polymer composites using sol-gel techniques
  • Microstructural evolution
  • Vapor deposition of diamond-like films
  • Development of fiber-optic glasses
  • Vitrification of industrial waste
  • Fabrication and testing of advanced microcomposite materials
  • High-rate forming techniques for net shape forming
  • High power, high intensity and ultrafast Laser materials interaction and processing
  • High-temperature intermetallic materials
  • Sheet metal forming
  • Magnetron sputtering of laminated composites
  • Processing of ceramic composites from metallic precursors
  • Controlled crystal orientations in high Tc ceramic superconductors
  • Modeling of the chemical vapor deposition process
  • Casting and solidification-based processing of alloys and metal matrix composites
  • Thermomechanical processing of metals and alloys
  • Multi-material casting and manufacturing

Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence

The Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME) was established to provide university and industrial partners with the necessary resources to rapidly transition technology to higher levels of readiness using four strategic activities:

  • Conducting applied research and development for university, industry and government partners
  • Leveraging advanced equipment to conduct standardized testing and machining services
  • Managing full-scale manufacturing user facilities
  • Providing undergraduate students with hands-on manufacturing & engineering experience while they complete their degree

CDME is staffed by two dozen industry-hardened engineers, technicians, program managers and roughly 40 undergraduate student employees. The center averages 50 concurrent projects with an average duration of four to six months. Director: Nate Ames
