Check out the MILL
The MSE “make and measure” space, the MILL, allows us to set a new standard for materials education.
Students from all across Georgia Tech come to the MILL to synthesize different formulations, characterize microstructure, and measure properties of materials. They can make filaments using different blends or the 3D multi-material printers to process new polymer compounds, solid-filled polymer composites, and even complex alloys. They use high temperature furnaces to process glass and ceramics, characterize the structure using infrared and UV/vis spectroscopy, optical and scanning electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and measure mechanical, electrical, and optical properties.
The MILL provides an open-access peer-to-peer learning and user-friendly environment to promote hands-on creativity, discovery, and design.
