Research Center (MRC) at Iowa State University is a multi-disciplinary center
focusing on the study of semiconductor materials, devices, and
applications. Its purpose is to bring together researchers from
engineering and the basic sciences in a collaborative atmosphere to
pursue fundamental and applied research in semiconductor electronics and
photonics. The MRC is part of the Institute for Physical Research and
Technology (IPRT), an umbrella organization that ties together the research
work of a number of ISU centers.
Established in 1984, the MRC's technical emphases are on photovoltaics, organic electronics and photonic band gap research. The MRC, which works with small to large industrial firms in Iowa and beyond, is located in the Applied Sciences Complex, one mile northwest of ISU's central campus.
