Naval Research Lab opens nano center

Oct. 24, 2003 — The Naval Research Laboratory this week officially opened a center in Washington, D.C., for nanoscale fabrication, manipulation and characterization.

The Nanoscience Research Laboratory, which cost $12.7 million, boasts 5,000 square feet of Class 100 clean rooms, 5,000 square feet of “quiet” and “ultraquiet” lab space and other microscopy and fabrication equipment.

It also will be home to the Naval Research Lab’s Institute for Nanoscience, which will allow scientists to interact with engineers to develop things like smart sensors that can detect and analyze medical anomalies or chemical exposures and administer therapeutics.
