About Us

Our story

Multiscale Systems was created because wanted to make better materials.

Built upon the PhD and post-doc research of founders Jesse Silverberg and Art Evans, Multiscale Systems has grown from a garage start-up to a million dollar firm in just a couple of years.

Funding and support come from a range of organizations, including NASA, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, accelerators, and industry partners.

With headquarters in Worcester, MA we will support our community through economic growth, job creation, and community partnerships.

What we do

We’re an R&D firm that designs and manufactures advanced metamaterials. Metamaterials are created by combining origami-inspired geometric patterns with existing materials, making them lighter, stronger, and more multifunctional than conventional materials alone.

Metamaterials are a new breed of materials, created without the need for costly molecular or chemical development, the usual method for how traditional materials are created. Metamaterials are also agnostic to the material itself; the advanced patterns and their corresponding benefits can be applied to a range of materials, such as plastics, metals, and composites.

The potential application of advanced metamaterials is massive, from aerospace to semi-trailer manufacturing. Because our solutions allow for more than one optimization to be applied, materials can be optimized for multiple priorities such as weight reduction, thermal expansion, energy absorption, aeroelasticity, insulation, conductivity, and much more.
