The Interdisciplinary Manufacturing Engineering and Design (iMED) Laboratory specializes in research intended to devise efficient bulk fabrication techniques of novel material systems. In doing so, traditional fabrication and nanotechnology principles are applied in material design, while primarily nondestructive testing techniques are employed for characterization and modeling of newly devised and fabricated materials.

The lab is located in 0086, Black Engineering Building, Iowa State University, Ames, IA.
