Soft Materials Characterization Lab


The Soft Materials Characterization Laboratory (SMCL) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides a research facility for analysis and characterization of synthetic polymers, soft materials and polymer devices.

The SMCL is equipped with nearly 50 instruments that support leading-edge research programs, give students access to a state-of-the-art education facility and provides services to industrial clients.  Access to the lab and to all instrumentation is available to qualified users from the University of Wisconsin, other education institutions, or industry.

The SMCL is located on the basement floor of the Engineering Hall Building on the University of Wisconsin-Madison Campus.
