Materials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory (MSCL)

INTRODUCTION

 

Materials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory (MSCL) was established on 1st November 1999 and formerly known as Advanced Materials Research Center (AMRC) and later was changed to Advanced Materials Laboratory (AML). In line with university’s restructuring, its name was changed to Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology Laboratory (AMNL) in 2006. Recent restructuring in 2012 has seen AMNL evolving to Materials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory (MSCL) to be in tune with advanced materials and nanotechnology research focus. This laboratory is one of the three research laboratories under the Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA).

MSCL focuses in three main activities:

  • Interdisciplinary research and development work in advanced materials and nanotechnology

  • Postgraduate research programs

  • Dissemination of innovative knowledge and technologies in advanced materials and nano-technology

OBJECTIVES

  • To be a leading research center in advanced materials and nanotechnology

  • To develop world class research laboratory in advanced mate-rials and nanotechnology

  • To disseminate knowledge and innovative technologies through publications, seminars and conferences
