Scientists across North Carolina will now be able to probe the mysteries of
very tiny particles, polymers, and surfaces for applications ranging from
biomedicine to polymer science.
Thanks to an $850,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), a
consortium of universities – Duke, North Carolina State and University of North
Carolina-Chapel Hill – has created the Triangle Small Angle X-Ray Scattering
(SAXS) facility at Duke.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced six Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) awards as a result of the 2012 PREM competition. "DMR is excited by the impact these partnerships will have in continuing to improve the diversity of the materials science and engineering workforce," said Ian Robertson, division director for DMR. "The Division of Materials Research also acknowledges and thanks other divisions within NSF for contributing to the success of this important program."
