The Materials Research Facility - A Shared Research Facility for Multidimensional Fabrication and Characterization (MRF) is a research center and service facility at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas that supports scientific research activities through its wide array of sophisticated characterization and processing instruments. UNT is among an elite group of public institutions nationwide that offer this complement of facilities.
In addition to UNT-affiliated researchers, MRF collaborates with other universities and industries. Researchers use the more than two-dozen machines at MRF to fabricate and analyze materials from the micro to atomic level. Projects span numerous areas of expertise in disciplines such as engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry, and biology and are at the cutting edge of cross-disciplinary analysis, characterization, and synthesis.
