Grants to USA investigators at nonprofit organizations, colleges, and universities for research to advance the understanding of topical materials. Proposals may focus on the following research topics: condensed matter physics, biomaterials, electronic and photonic materials, polymers, metals and metallic nanostructures, and solid-state and materials chemistry.
Research supported by the Division of Materials Research (DMR) focuses on advancing fundamental understanding of materials, materials discovery, design, synthesis, characterization, properties, and materials-related phenomena. DMR awards enable understanding of the electronic, atomic, and molecular structures, mechanisms, and processes that govern nanoscale to macroscale morphology and properties; manipulation and control of these properties; discovery of emerging phenomena of matter and materials; and creation of novel design, synthesis, and processing strategies that lead to new materials with unique characteristics. These discoveries and advancements transcend traditional scientific and engineering disciplines.
The Division supports research and education activities in the United States through funding of individual investigators, teams, centers, facilities, and instrumentation. Projects supported by DMR are essential for the development of future technologies and industries that meet societal needs, as well preparation of the next generation of materials researchers.
Proposals are invited to the following six Topical Materials Research Programs that are participating in this solicitation:
- Biomaterials (BMAT)
- Condensed Matter Physics (CMP)
- Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM)
- Metals and Metallic Nanostructures (MMN)
- Polymers (POL)
- Solid State and Materials Chemistry (SSMC)
