Our unique research portfolio comprises numerous technical experts in a breadth of technology fields ranging from novel materials and processing technologies to devices/transducers, packaging, and multi-physics modeling.

This diverse, complementary expertise together with strong experimental capabilities enables exploration for the breakthroughs in multi-functional integrated systems technologies.

The pooled resources of the MIST Center enable a return on investment (ROI) that is much larger than the typical ROI for a single expert or single company contract.

MIST Center research intersects the following industries:

  • Semiconductor manufacturers
  • Sensor and MEMS companies
  • Analog electronic companies
  • Biomedical device companies
  • Power electronics companies
  • Wireless technology companies
  • Nanomaterials suppliers
  • System integrators
