The National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) is one of the world's foremost centers for electron microscopy and microcharacterization.
Located adjacent to the University of California, Berkeley, NCEM was established in 1983 to maintain a forefront research center for electron-optical characterization of materials with state-of-the-art instrumentation and expertise.
NIH participates in the National Nanotechnology Initiative and this page contains information on (1) currently active NIH and BECON research and training opportunities and (2) listings of funded grants for NIH and BECON program announcements related to nanotechnology and nanoscience.
The Carbon Nanoscience Group seeks to understand the chemical, physical, and optoelectronic properties of a variety of nanosystems and nanomaterials. The end goal is to develop and apply design principles to fabricate new molecules and materials for application in several important renewable energy technologies.
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 New Jersey Nanotechnology Consortium (NJNC) provides rapid and cost-effective access to world-class nanotechnology research and development services, allowing breakthrough nanotechnology-driven innovations. The nucleus of the NJNC is the world-renowned Bell Labs nanofabrication laboratory in Murray Hill, along with the Bell Labs scientists and researchers.
