File Size:1MB


The Materials Preparation Center (MPC) was established in 1981 to serve the segment of the research community interested in specialized materials, including metals, intermetallic alloys and ceramics. The center is a direct outgrowth of landmark research achievements in very pure metals and compounds made at the Ames Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy research facility located on the Iowa State University campus. The materials we prepare and the services we provide are used throughout the world by both the research community and private industry. Since 1982, we served more than 2,100 scientists - 164 last year alone, including 56 university and government laboratories, 78 industrial laboratories and 30 foreign industries and universities. Our work enables us to assist the research and industrial communities in a variety of ways, ranging from developing processes used to start up new magnetic materials businesses to developing materials used in a treatment for malignant brain tumors.
