Welcome to PCCM

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) is a National Science Foundation supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Princeton University.  Established in 1994, the PCCM is dedicated to pushing the frontiers of complexity in materials science - bringing together over thirty faculty from six departments in the natural sciences and engineering. Currently funded by the NSF (DMR-1420541), the PCCM supports three Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) and several seed projects. The current IRGs are focused on research in the newly discovered topological phases of electrons and materials, surface and dynamics in confined polymers, and the development of ultra coherent quantum materials. In addition to forefront materials research, the center sponsors an active educational outreach program involving elementary, middle and high schools, as well as a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and teacher programs. Industrial collaboration is another important aspect of PCCM's research initiatives.
