Irvine Materials Research Institute (IMRI) is a newly established interdisciplinary organization under the Office of Research of the University of California, Irvine (UCI).  It serves as the cross-campus nexus for materials research at UCI. IMRI operates a wide range of state-of-the-art, open-access user facilities for the characterization of inorganic, organic, and biological materials and devices ranging from sub-Å to macroscopic length scales - available to all university, industry, and non-profit researchers. It offers advanced techniques and services including structural and chemical characterization, 3D imaging, surface analysis, physical property measurements, and fabrication of materials and devices by a variety of techniques. 
      Our mission is to make UCI one of the best academic institutions in the world for the characterization, fabrication of materials and devices and to provide a first-class facility for materials researchers to engage in the development of new innovations.
