Tvrdy Lab


Welcome to the Tvrdy Lab at UCCS!!!

Welcome to the Tvrdy Lab at UCCS! We are interested in the elucidation and application of properties unique to nanoscale materials. Located in Centennial Hall on the beautiful Colorado Springs campus of the University of Colorado, the Tvrdy Lab engages undergraduate and Master’s level students in the design, execution, interpretation, and dissemination of novel research that both furthers the fields of nanoscience & nanotechnology and affords an educational experience beyond what can be obtained in a traditional classroom or lab course setting.
