In May 2021, three universities with strong track records in CdTe research—Arizona State University, University of Delaware, and University of Utah—were invited to present at a joint meeting of the Industrial Advisory and Executive Boards of US-MAC.  By vote, all three universities were approved for admission. In June 2021, the Memorandum of Understanding governing US-MAC was modified, and Arizona State University, University of Delaware, and the University of Utah were formally admitted. We welcome our new partners!
