NIST Nano Center Accepting Proposals

May 14, 2007
Focus is cost-effective manufacturing of nano-products.

Looking for a state-of-the-art place to study nanotechnology-related products? If yes, then the U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may be able to help.

NIST's Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST), established in March 2006, is now accepting proposals for nanotechnology-related research. The center is located within NIST's Advanced Measurement Laboratory, and its mission is to support innovation in nanotechnology by development measurement methods, standards and technologies that will help move the technology from the lab to production.

"We've specifically staffed and equipped the CNST to help solve the problems that are slowing the movement of nanotechnology from discovery to market," says Robert Celotta, CNST director.

The center includes a 16,000-square-foot nanofabrication facility, about half of which is a class 100 (ISO 5) cleanroom. Other tools include photolithography, ion beam and etching equipment. A staff of about 40 supports the center.

The center will consider both proprietary and non-proprietary research. For additional information and fee schedules, visit Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology.
