Nanofabrication Research Laboratory (NRL)
Research requiring nanofabrication is carried out in the new 10,000-ft2
NRL. The scientific focus in the NRL tends to be on developing new methods
for the controlled synthesis and directed assembly of nanomaterials,
in order to link nanoscale properties and phenomena up to the microscale
and beyond. This research is expected to be strongly coupled with that
in Catalysis and Nano-Building Blocks and in Functional
Methods also are developed to functionally integrate the use of “soft” and “hard” materials,
with a strong scientific focus on nanoscale biomaterials systems, coupling
to research in both Macromolecular Complex Systems and in Bio-Inspired
Nanomaterials. Clean-room space and electron beam- and photo- lithography
capabilities provide support for users of all seven CNMS Scientific Themes.
