Structured Materials Industries, Incorporated is focused on being the leader in selling Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) Technology for complex materials. SMI offers for sale: deposition systems and components. We also sell materials and process development services in support of system sales. SMI has an in-house applications laboratory featuring multi-reactor deposition systems and analytic capabilities, has developed a range of strategic partnerships to develop and implement MOCVD technology and looks forward to continuing to grow and expand upon such advantageous relationships.
SMI’s MOCVD focus began with selling tools for complex oxides such as ferroelectrics, electro-optic materials, and transparent conductive oxide. Present activities have expanded to include p-type optical ZnO, LiNbO3 for MOEMS and OICs, superconductor tapes, MEMS films, nitrides, carbides, and even thin film batteries. However, market interest and development opportunities are expanding our capabilities into additional material areas, including metals, compound semiconductors, and chalcogenides, among others.
Much of SMI’s MOCVD sales supporting development projects have been funded (in excess of $15 Million to date) by sales to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) with administration by the Air Force, the Army, the Navy and NASA; the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Air Force (AF), the Department of Energy (DOE), the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Industries, Universities, and Corporations, and have been supported by CRADAs with federal and commercial organizations and laboratories, providing SMI with a wide range of experience and development capabilities.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
