"The Molecular Foundry at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
, a national nanoscience user facility, is accepting requests for no cost access to its instruments, techniques and skilled staff
from scientists seeking to enhance their own research projects. Requests from potential users, in the form of web-based proposals, must be received by the deadline
of February 11, 2009.
" The mission of the Molecular Foundry
is to provide researchers from academic, government, and industrial laboratories around the world access to instruments, materials, technical expertise and training in nanoscience.
Access to the Foundry is free of charge, for research that is in the public domain and intended for open publication.
Proprietary users, those wishing to maintain confidential data, pay a full-cost-recovery rate and have greater latitude regarding generated intellectual property. Over 500 users have already taken advantage of the Molecular Foundry’s capabilities in pursuit of their own research toward the synthesis, characterization, and theory of nanoscale materials."
