Transforming Infinity: The new Laboratory for Advanced Materials

The Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM) was officially opened on March 17, 2010. The LAM is the third in a series of renovation projects at the eastern end of the Infinite Corridor in the Main Group that have created public-facing materials science and engineering laboratories. The first two of these projects — the NanoLab and the UnderGraduate Teaching Laboratory — replaced fixed cinderblock walls, cork-boards, and closed doors with frosted glass windows with floor-to-ceiling glass walls through which casual passersby could see researchers and students at work. The lab is a shared facility for researchers from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering to pursue joint projects in interdisciplinary areas. The LAM renovation was funded by a generous gift from Vasilis, S.M. ’61 (Course X), Ph.D. ’66 (Course III), and Danae Salapatas.
