The James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago is an interdisciplinary association of scientists with primary interests in the study of physical chemistry and condensed matter physics.

Theoretical and experimental research in the Institute concerns nonequilibrium phenomena, phase transitions, superconductivity, chemical kinetics, molecular beams, laser spectroscopy, surface phenomena, semiconductors, polymer physics and chemistry, and dynamical systems.

The institute provides an environment in which scientists of varied disciplines interact and aid each other's research; it extends to predoctoral and postdoctoral research students the opportunity to study and do research in an interdisciplinary setting. Most of the faculty in the Institute are also associated with the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, supported by the National Science Foundation.
