Multi-scale Manufacturing Material Processing Lab (MMMPL)

Welcome to the home page of the MMMPL!ASU

We are a team of engineers and scientists in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at ASU, with a focus on developing novel manufacturing and material processing techniques across multiple scales. We are interested in integrating disciplines of physics, chemistry, materials science, nanotechnology, and computational simulation to the new process development. The process-structure-property relationship is established through the following process monitoring/modeling, material characterization and property evaluation. Current processes under exploration include laser shock processing, electromagnetic field assisted manufacturing, and additive manufacturing such as selective laser melting, fused deposition modeling,  stereolithography and inkjet printing. We are open to new ideas, challenges and collaborations. Learn more about our research…
