PREM Center for Ultrafast Dynamics and Catalysis in Emerging Materials (C-UDCEM)
The PREM Center for Ultrafast Dynamics and Catalysis in Emerging Materials (C-UDCEM) at UCF is an NSF funded Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) seed Center. The Center was established in September 2021. In conjunction with PIs at the Molecular Engineering Materials Center (MEMC) – a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the University of Washington in Seattle, this Center will focus on the discovery of new phenomena in quantum materials and catalysts.
C-UDCEM’s human mission is to nurture an inclusive environment for students at UCF while partnering them with students at the University of Washington, Seattle. C-UDCEM will provide tools and resources for co-mentoring activities and exchange visits of students, organization of conferences, workshops for undergraduate students, summer camps for high school students, and development of open-source online learning modules.
