NREL's specialists in chemical science and nanoscience are helping to provide the nation with clean sources of energy by studying and developing novel and efficient ways to convert the energy in sunlight into chemical energy (such as hydrogen) and light-generated electricity. Their research focuses on the basic, fundamental science that underpins many aspects of renewable energy.
The AML is designed to be the world's best measurement laboratory. NIST and its partners will be able to produce the measurements and standards needed to move key 21st-century technologies from the research horizon on to the factory floor.
The world's first government-sponsored organization dedicated to developing the biotechnology industry (including bionanotechnology). The center's mission is to provide long-term economic and societal benefits to North Carolina through support of biotechnology research, business and education statewide.
The mission of the Center, housed within the Rensselaer Nanotechnology Center (RNC), is to integrate research, education, and technology dissemination, and serve as a national resource for fundamental knowledge and applications, in directed assembly of nanostructures.
The center's mission is to create high throughput, reliable and versatile nanomanufacturing systems and associated processes through transformative research, education of leaders and global and industrial engagement that will revolutionize future generations of mobile computing and energy devices.
The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) integrates nanoscale science with neutron science; synthesis science; and theory, modeling, and simulation. Operating as a national user facility, the CNMS supports a multidisciplinary environment for research to understand nanoscale materials and phenomena.
