Brookhaven nanomaterials center tackles energy research

The new Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) here will help advance the effort to achieve U.S. energy independence, lab officials said at a dedication ceremony on Monday (May 21).

"I have a chance to work on one of the most important problems facing us," said Dr. Charles Black, a scientific leader of the electronic materials discipline on the Brookhaven facility. The center's environment "is fostering an open-door community culture so we will have the opportunity to form partnerships with scientists, small and large industries and even entrepreneurs."
