Johns Hopkins University’s Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) is pleased to announce its collaboration with Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW). This effort will enable HEMI and Corning to work together on projects to explore the performance of ceramics and glasses through state-of-the-art experiments and sophisticated computational modeling.

Professors Lori Graham-Brady, KT Ramesh, and Todd Hufnagel of HEMI will be working closely with Corning scientists to investigate fundamental mechanisms related to the mechanical performance of Corning’s precision glass and ceramics materials. The collaboration leverages the deep knowledge of materials performance under extreme conditions provided by HEMI faculty and they expect to be conducting experiments using the cutting-edge resources located at Argonne National Laboratory.

“The caliber of materials research performed within HEMI is quite impressive and we are excited to collaborate with them on these projects,” said Dr. Steven Ogunwumi, research manager at Corning. “We hope these collaborations will lead to a long-term relationship between Corning and HEMI at Johns Hopkins.”

Professor KT Ramesh, Director of HEMI added, “This collaboration with Corning provides us the opportunity to work with an industry leader in precision materials while enhancing our research portfolio. We look forward to seeing the translation of our fundamental research by the leader in the field of ceramics and glass.”
