AMO's R&D projects explore novel energy-efficient, next-generation materials and innovative process technologies for both targeting specific industry sectors and a wider range of manufacturing industries. In addition, R&D projects focus on foundational or advanced energy technologies across multiple industry sectors. All of AMO's R&D investments are high impact, use project diversity to spread risk, target nationally important innovations at critical decision points, and contribute to quantifiable energy savings.
The Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs provide an institutional home for innovative postdoctoral researchers to build their research into products and train to be entrepreneurs.
These cost-shared projects are selected through a competitive process from exceptional research teams working on foundational process and materials technologies.
Innovative materials can open new design spaces for high-performance and renewable energy technology manufacturing. Projects focus on three areas with clear energy, carbon, and economic benefits.
