The Center for Emergent Materials engages researchers from multiple disciplines to work in teams on scientific problems too complex for a single researcher to solve. The CEM, established in 2008, is located at The Ohio State University and funded by a National Science Foundation MRSEC award.
$17.9 Million NSF Grant Renewal Funds Center for Emergent Materials’ Broad Impact Science
December 8, 2014
The six-year, $17.9 million grant funds Ohio State’s adventurous, long-term studies of forward-looking new materials that are on the very edge of the possible.
“This is not about short-term funding that has clearly-defined achievable goals. Rather, the focus is on adventurous, foundational research that enables far-reaching technologies. Great science is the heart of this funding,” said P. Christopher Hammel, director of the Center for Emergent Materials: an NSF MRSEC.

May 7, 2015
Prof. Josh Goldberger, assistant professor, chemistry and biochemistry, and co-lead of CEM’s IRG-2, joins an elite group of 13 of the country’s top young chemical sciences researchers named 2015 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars. Selection is based on a body of significant scholarship established during the first five years of their research careers and a demonstrated commitment to education.
IRG-Spin Work on ‘Phonon-induced diamagnetic force and lattice thermal conductivity’ Featured by OSU, NSF
March 25, 2015
Jos Heremans with co-authors Roberto Myers and Wolfgang Windl have been featured by Ohio State and the National Science Foundation via Science 360 for their groundbreaking work in IRG-Spin on phonon-induced diamagnetic force and its effect on the lattice thermal conductivity. The landmark study, published in this week’s Nature Materials, proves that magnets can control heat and sound.
