The Georgia Tech Materials Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is located in the Georgia Tech Marcus Nanotechnology Building. The initial focus of the center is research and development on epitaxial graphene (EG), a material with extraordinary electronic properties that offers the possibility of greatly enhanced speed and performance relative to silicon; this material may serve as the successor to silicon in integrated circuits and microelectronic devices. Georgia Tech Physics Professors Walt de Heer, Ed Conrad, and Phil First are world leaders in the growth and characterization of EG.
