The Materials Science and Applications Group at Fisk University is a specialized research group involved in the crystal growth, characterization of novel materials, fabrication and testing new radiation detectors. These new materials include electronic materials that are the basis for radiation detectors and optical crystals that are useful for infrared lasers. Applications include medicine, biophotonics, astrophysics, remote sensing, nuclear nonproliferation, homeland security and aviation safety. Collaborations with national labs, other universities and industry are benefiting students seeking summer internship opportunities. Undergraduate and graduate students are involved in all the activities. We offer them opportunity to gain hands-on experience in research field.
