A consortium from Indiana University, Texas A&M, Temple and the University of Texas have recently been awarded a grant to establish the NSF Center for Chemical Imaging – the Center for Single-Entity Nanochemistry and Nanocrystal Design.
The goal of this center is to address one of the biggest challenges in nanocrystal chemistry – the inherent heterogeneity of nanocrystals – by creating the scientific toolkit and chemical knowledge to separate individual nanocrystal responses from bulk property measurements. This research is supported by the NSF Centers for Chemical Innovation Program Grant #2221062 from the Division of Chemistry.
Aggies associated with the center are Lane Baker and Xin Yan, who will focus on instrument design and analysis by electrochemistry and mass spectrometry. A press release from TAMU describes the more details of the project.
