New Nanocenter Opening at Brookhaven National Laboratory
UPTON, NY | Posted on May 1st, 2007
EVENT: Dedication of the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, a state-of-the-art facility about to open at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory for the fabrication and study of materials at the nanoscale -- on the order of billionths of a meter. Reporters will be offered tours of brand-new scientific facilities, a lunchtime nanoscience tutorial, and one-on-one interviews with key scientists.
WHEN: Monday, May 21, 2007, beginning at 11 a.m.
WHERE: Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Brookhaven National Laboratory -- on William Floyd Parkway, one-and-a-half miles north of Exit 68 of the Long Island Expressway, Upton, New York.
DETAILS: Scientists from Brookhaven Lab and academic and industrial organizations throughout the northeastern U.S. are poised to move into the Lab's new Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), a facility aimed at developing nanoscale materials to help the U.S. achieve energy independence. Some areas CFN scientists will explore include: nanostructured catalysts to improve the efficiency of fuel cells and manufacturing processes; technologies based on biological molecules to improve energy conversion and molecular self-assembly; and new electronic materials to improve energy storage and distribution and further the dramatic evolution of electronic devices. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to meet leading scientists working on nanoscience and learn about the CFN's unique array of tools for nanofabrication, nanomaterials preparation and imaging, and computer simulation. Together with Brookhaven's existing and proposed facilities for multidisciplinary research of nanoscale structures and properties, the CFN -- one of five nanoscale science research centers funded by the Office of Basic Energy Sciences within DOE's Office of Science -- will serve as a focal point and enabler of advanced materials study in the northeastern United States.

About Brookhaven National Laboratory
One of ten national laboratories overseen and funded primarily by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation of State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
