Researchers, dressed in white suits, work in "clean room" lab under yellow light.

The Princeton Materials Institute (PMI) is a multidisciplinary research center driving advances in materials science, photonics, and quantum science. A particular strength is research that combines expertise in “hard” materials such as conventional semiconductors and ceramics with knowledge of “soft” materials such as plastics, biological molecules, and fluids. Integrating these conventionally distinct areas yields breakthroughs in fields from telecommunications to energy to biotechnology. The institute brings together physicists, chemists, biologists, and engineers, as well as industry partners, to bring fundamental advances to market.
