WSE Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI)

Overview of Services

The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) was formed in 2013 with the mission to provide global intellectual leadership to advance the fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions and demonstrating extreme performance. With the completion of Malone Hall in 2014, HEMI started building building characterization facilities to push materials research. These facilities contain equipment to study and test the micro structures of materials and the behavior of those materials under different conditions. HEMI facilities are open for use to HEMI and JHU affiliates and collaborators at set rates. Training is available and required on the equipment for users. In some cases, assisted use is available.
