Program Objective

             The MURI program is a multi-agency Department of Defense (DoD) program that supports research teams based on academic research organizations whose efforts intersect more than one traditional science and engineering disciplines. This program will provide long-term support for multidisciplinary team research, graduate students and laboratory instrumentation development. The team efforts can accelerate research progress by cross-fertilization of ideas and hasten the transition of basic research findings to practical applications. This project "Synthesis and Processing of Nanocomposite Permanent Magnets" is one of FY2005 MURI topics entitled "Materials Manufacturing Processes, Interface Control and Reliability of Nanostructure-Enhanced Devices of Energy Conversion and Realization of High Performance Systems". This MURI Program is managed by Dr. Mihal Gross of Physical Science S&T Division, Office of Naval Research (ONR). This five-year research project led by Dr. J. Ping Liu at the Department of Physics, University of Texas at Arlington, will focus on developing the theoretical and processing capabilities to exploit nanostructured permanent magnets that exhibit superior magnetic properties consistent with the requirements of the DoD applications. The novel properties result from the inclusion of artificially fabricated low-dimensional nanostructure and allow rapid advances in bulk materials synthesis and understanding of the novel concept of complex media. The total funding for this MURI project is $5 million.
