The Workshop Program in Pictures

The DOE Nanoscale Science Research Centers (NSRC) Workshop attracted more than 400 scientists and engineers from 90 universities, 40 industries, 16 government labs, and 38 states. The program included presentations from political and government leaders, technical sessions featuring top scientists and engineers in nanoscale science and technology, and the first national users meeting for the NSRCs.
