CFM director with atomistic model

CFM serves researchers at WFU with an interest in a broad range of materials, providing a departmental-overarching platform that overcomes historical divisions. If you have any questions, please contact us at cfm@wfu.edu.


The mission of CFM is to propel WFU into the top tier of materials research by overcoming barriers between its various subfields—materials modeling, synthesis, processing, and chracterization.

The center provides a platform to connect a broad range of materials-focused research groups and support the multidisciplinary research necessary for break-through developments. The center implements its mission via activities in researcheducation, and outreach.
