The next deadline in the proposal cycle for the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Broookhaven National Laboratory is September 30, 2023.
The CFN has hosted a broad range of research investigations in nanoscience since its inception in diverse research areas, such as efficient catalysts, fuel cell chemistries and architectures, and photovoltaic (solar cell) components. Scientists and engineers can take advantage of the wealth of Facilities, Capabilities, Expertise, and Personnel that CFN has to offer, like:
- Thin film nanofabrication and processing capabilities within a 5,000 sq. ft. Class 100/1000 cleanroom facility
- Synthesis of organic and inorganic nanomaterials with specified functionality
- Time resolved absorption and emission spectroscopy
- Atomic resolution imaging with scanning transmission (STEM), transmission (TEM), and scanning tunneling (STM) electron microscopy
- Theory and diverse software packages for quantum chemistry and materials property calculations
CFN facilities are available free of charge to scientists from universities, industry, and national laboratories worldwide, for non-proprietary nanoscience research projects. Access to the facilities is granted to external users through a peer-reviewed proposal system.
