The mission of the Microelectronics Research Center (MRC) at The University of Texas at Austin is to perform education, research and development in materials and electronic devices.  MRC is funded by the National Science Foundation through the National Nano-Technology Infrastructure Network.

Recent News

Prof. Ray T. Chen has been awarded a $1.1 Million grant from the US Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to work on 3D printing phased array antennas.

Profs. Andrea Alù and Mikhail Belkin in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have created a new nonlinear metasurface, or meta mirror, that could one day enable the miniaturization of laser systems.

Ping-Chun Li, a graduate student researcher in Prof. Edward Yu’s group in UT ECE was recently selected as a recipient of a Material Research Society (MRS) Graduate Student Silver Award at the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco, CA. Ping-Chun Li received his award for his presentation titled "Large-Area, Flexible, Wavelength-Selective Three-Dimensional Optical Metasurface."

UT ECE graduate student Xiaohan Li was awarded the best poster award at the 40th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC) held in Denver, CO, June 8-13, 2014.

Flexible electronic circuits would make possible radical new kinds of devices, like water-resistant tablet computers that can be rolled or folded. A group of academic and industry researchers has now demonstrated one of the most important components for this fully flexible future: graphene radio-frequency electronics that are speedy enough to produce, receive, and process telecommunication signals.

Upcoming Events

Oct 15, 2014 to Oct 17, 2014

The workshop will provide a forum for presenting current research and for discussions on issues related to stress-induced phenomena in microelectronics.
