Material Dynamics Laboratory

The Material Dynamics Lab established by Martina Decker focuses on how new material technologies can help us address contemporary issues and challenges. In particular, the lab pursues applications for smart materials and nanotechnology in our designed products and the built environment. This includes materials that can enable interactive and reactive objects as well as architectural environments. The Material Dynamics Lab serves as a vital junction for interdisciplinary innovation, connecting a variety of NJIT’s departments, research centers and specialized labs to generate design solutions to an assortment of problems, including: water conservation and quality, energy conservation and production, health and safety, and security.
