- Combinatorial Nanoscience – This theme focuses on the rational design of targeted nanostructured materials.
- Functional Nanointerfaces – This theme centers on understanding and design of the physical and chemical properties of hybrid nanomaterials, defined as integrated materials composed of highly contrasting components, such as inorganic nanomaterials, organic supermolecular assemblies, and complex living organisms.
- Multimodal Nanoscale Imaging – This theme develops and applies multiple spectroscopic and imaging technologies – including high-resolution flagship electron microscopies, scanned probe microscopies, and hyperspectral (nano)optical methods and imaging probes – to investigate structural and dynamic nanoscale phenomena in hard and soft nanostructured materials in solid-state, liquid, and vapor environments.
- Single-Digit Nanofabrication and Assembly – This theme aims to organize and structure material with critical features of dimensions at or below 10 nm, i.e., on the single-digit nanometer and atomic scales, to create nanoscale devices and architectures in inorganic, biological, or hybrid systems.
The Foundry also offers a mechanism for users to perform proprietary work, which requires an approved, peer-reviewed proposal and a Proprietary User Agreement (PUA). Under a PUA, incoming user data may be proprietary; the user may keep their generated research results private; the user performs all research on the project; Foundry staff may provide technical assistance but do not generate data; and the user pays for the full costs of use of the facility and staff assistance.
The Test Chamber is designed to maintain a single point operating condition and is able to maintain dry bulb temperatures in the range of 40°F to 120°F and humidity conditions in the range of 30% to 95%. It has the capability of testing four refrigeration units simultaneously at a single operating condition.
For more than four decades, GMF has partnered with hundreds of researchers to develop advanced instrumentation, laboratory- and field-based sensing systems, and lab-to-field data measurement and telemetry solutions. These tools have been critical to addressing scientific questions and challenges surrounding ecosystem health; watershed function; atmospheric systems; carbon sequestration; agriculture and bioenergy; oil, gas and geothermal resources; ocean behavior; and hazardous material storage and disposal. GMF instrumentation solutions have repeatedly enabled new scientific discoveries that might otherwise have remained out of reach using standard off-the-shelf measurement solutions.
