This facility consists of four top-of-the line transmission electron microscopes, two of which are highly specialized instruments capable of extreme levels of resolution, achieved through spherical aberration correction. The facility is also equipped with extensive sample-preparation capabilities. The scientific interests of the staff focus on understanding the microscopic origin of the physical and chemical behavior of materials, with specific emphasis on in-situ studies of materials in native, functional environments.
The wide breadth of activities in Brookhaven Lab’s Instrumentation Division is enabled by a set of key capabilities including laboratories for the development of silicon sensors , gas and noble liquid detectors, and application specific integrated circuits (ASICs). We also have device-level computer aided design, board-level circuit design, and high-throughput data acquisition capabilities; an assembly and high-density interconnect laboratory; and facilities for the development and production of photocathodes for detector and accelerator applications.
NSLS-II is a world-class light source that enables the scientific study of materials with nanoscale resolution and exquisite sensitivity. NSLS-II provides cutting-edge capabilities for x-ray imaging and high-energy resolution analysis to capture atomic-level data on a wide variety of materials, from biological molecules to semiconductor devices.
The Center for Functional Nanomaterials operates multiple end-stations at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) for nanomaterials characterization. An aberration-corrected low-energy electron/photoemission electron microscope (AC-LEEM/XPEEM) allows high-resolution spectro-microscopy of surfaces. And two complementary x-ray scattering end-stations allow structural probing of complex materials at the molecular and nanoscale.
The Proximal Probes Facility consists of laboratories for microscopy, spectroscopy, and probing of nanostructured materials and their functional properties. At the core of the facility is a suite of instruments for in-situ microscopy of surfaces and nanostructures under extreme conditions, e.g., in reactive gases, and at high or low temperatures. Unique instruments enable in-situ and in-operando studies of surface chemistry and catalysis at pressures from ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) to 5 bar via complementary scanning tunneling microscopy imaging and photoelectron spectroscopy, coupled with real-time gas analysis. Several UHV systems are available for scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy, as well as low-energy electron microscopy and synchrotron photoelectron microscopy. A UHV nanoprobe system allows electrical transport measurements on individual nanostructures.
The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) is designed to explore new methods of accelerating particles to higher energies and producing ever-brighter x-ray beams. Research conducted by scientists from Brookhaven and other institutions has implications for both physics research and future medical applications, including new cancer-treatment systems. The core capabilities of the ATF include a high-brightness photoinjector electron gun, a 70 million electron-volt linear accelerator, high power lasers synchronized to the electron beam with picosecond precision, four beam lines (most with energy spectrometers), and a sophisticated computer control system.
The Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) is a national scientific user facility, offering users a supported research experience with top-caliber scientists and access to state-of-the-art instrumentation. CFN’s mission is advancing nanoscience to impact society, as an essential resource for the scientific community and by performing transformative nanomaterials research to advance energy, economic, and national security.
