MORE Center

Overview of Services

Since its opening in July, 2011, the Materials for Opto/Electronics Research and Education (MORE) Center has advanced science and innovation with facilities and expertise enabling the fabrication and characterization of materials and devices for emerging electronic and optoelectronic technologies, including solar cells and lighting. A hub for undergraduate and graduate research, education, and collaboration, the center has 27 tools available for both direct use and service work; in addition to a suite of thin film deposition options, the MORE Center has profilometry, ellipsometry, and microscopy characterization tools, a cleanroom facility, electron and photolithography capabilities, and inert gloveboxes for work with air sensitive materials. In thirteen years of operation, the MORE Center has amassed over 700 users from research groups across Arts and Sciences, the Case School of Engineering, the School of Dental Medicine, and the Case School of Medicine. The MORE Center is open to internal, external academic and industrial users.
