Scientists at Brookhaven Lab have developed a way to direct the self-assembly of multiple molecular patterns within a single material, producing new nanoscale architectures. This is a significant conceptual leap in self-assembly that could change the way we design and manufacture electronics.
Tour the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven Lab this Sunday, July 17. See where scientists study structures as tiny as a billionth of a meter, hear a talk by scientist and facility director Charles Black, enjoy the "Magic of Chemistry" show, and more. Visitors 16 and older must bring a photo ID.
Scientists from all over the world visit the Center for Functional Nanomaterials to explore strange phenomena hidden on the nanoscale—an exciting and powerful landscape spanning just billionths of a meter. The U.S. Department of Energy opened the CFN, one of its five nanoscale science research centers in the United States, to develop unprecedented energy technologies and solve fundamental scientific puzzles.
