International Center for Multiscale Characterization

Institutions The International Center for Multiscale Characterization (ICMC) is supported jointly by scientists at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). We have a long-standing history of working together on important research problems. For many years, CSM faculty and students have collaborated with NREL on multiscale characterization of photovoltaic materials and other areas of materials science and renewable energy. The ICMC represents opens doors for these two institutions to collaborate with industry partners. We provide access to our expert researchers, as well as use of our research facilities.
