In July of 2006, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML), formerly the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST), awarded the University of Maryland a $1.5M Nanotechnology grant that supports a cooperative agreement to broaden collaborations in research efforts in development and manufacturing at the nano scale.
In order to use the NIST-PML facilities, you must first discuss your project with the NanoFab Manager ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
The PML in cooperation with the University of Maryland NanoCenter is offering opportunities for young researchers and graduate students to use the NIST Nanofab & PML facilities. The travel grant award covers costs of traveling beyond normal communting distances up to $1000.
