The University of New Mexico was recently awarded a National Science Foundation Research Center which is unique in the sense that it combines researchers from two Universities (University of New Mexico and New Mexico Tech), and two National Laboratories (Los Alamos and Sandia) to perform collaborative research on the chemistry and physics of ceramics. Another $2.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation's Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program funds a project entitled
