Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AMI)

In addition to several laboratories in UH main campus for thin film materials processing and metrology, our group’s main laboratory is housed in building 15 of the UH Energy Research Park through its affiliation with the Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AMI). AMI, led by Prof. Selva, was recently established as a University-wide initiative with a mission to address the challenges in scaling up lab-scale research advances demonstrated at the University of Houston to manufacturing as well as to develop unique solutions to manufacturing problems faced by industry.

The areas of manufacturing research undertaken at AMI broadly covers the ongoing work on superconductor wire manufacturing, roll-to-roll semiconductor manufacturing and as well as other areas of UH expertise such as flexible electronics, polymers, batteries and automation.
