Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research. Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to expand humanity's understanding of matter, energy, space and time, studying the smallest building blocks of matter using some of the largest and most complex machines in the world.
The laboratory's 6,800-acre site is located in Batavia, Illinois, and its 1,700-plus employees include scientists and engineers from around the world. More than 4,000 scientists from over 50 countries also collaborate with Fermilab to build and operate world-leading accelerator, detector and computing facilities to investigate the physics of fundamental particles.
One of the world's pioneering laboratories for accelerator science and technology, Fermilab is home to the 83,000-square-foot Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC), where lab scientists and engineers partner with industry to translate technology developed in the pursuit of science into the next generation of industrial accelerators, products and applications. The center features an experimental area and provides state-of-the-art facilities for visiting scientists and entrepreneurs, including the Accelerator Applications Development and Demonstration (A2D2) machine, a test platform for electron-beam- and X-ray-based inspection and testing.
Fermilab's Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer is a vital part of the laboratory, transitioning technologies to private-sector partners to enhance the nation's economic competitiveness. The office enables the formation of high-impact partnerships with industry, academia and other institutions that support the global and scientific missions of the lab.
Matthew Kramer has been Division Director for Materials Sciences and Engineering (DMSE) since 2014. He is also an adjunct professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State University. As DMSE director, Kramer oversees budgets, proposal preparation, Materials Preparation Center administration, and Sensitive Instrument Facility oversight. DMSE includes 13 FWPs (BES funded), EFRC CATS, approximately 13 additional DOE funded projects, and a small number of Strategic Partnership Projects. Kramer joined Ames Laboratory in 1988, specializing in the areas Structure and properties of glass forming metallic alloys, aperiodic intermetallic alloys, permanent magnets and high temperature alloys, development of in situ time resolved methods using electron microscopy and high energy X-ray diffraction, analytical electron microscopy, and advanced imaging techniques for understanding rapid solidification. He holds B.S. and M.S degrees in geo mechanics and geology from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. in geology from Iowa State University.
