Mohammad Malakooti and Hunter Spears of Dr. Henry Sodano's research group won the second place prize in the Florida Museum of Natural History's "The Elegance of Science" competition for their piece, titled "Nickel Nanoforest". Their artwork illustrated the resemblance between vertically aligned PZT (Lead Zirconate Titanate) nanowires electroplated with nickel nanoparticles and natural forest formations, as viewed from a scanning electron microscope. The competition aims to promote artistic creativity through the use of scientific research findings.

The NSF Multi-functional Integrated System Technology Center (MIST Center) held it’s Kickoff Meeting on Dec. 11-12, 2014. Led by IMG faculty Dr. Nishida and Dr. Arnold, and in partnership with UCF, the mission of the MIST Center is to facilitate integration of novel materials, processes, devices, and circuits into multi-functional systems through research partnerships between university, industry, and government stakeholders. With inaugural membership from eight organizations, the MIST Center selected 8 projects (6 at UF and 2 at UCF) to be conducted during 2015. The UF projects are:
