Berkeley Lab and University of Colorado-Boulder team develop new way to reveal crystal features in functional materials.
UC Berkeley researchers are collaborating with scientists from UCLA, University of Colorado at Boulder and other institutions to arrive at more detailed scientific findings through the improvement of real-time functional imaging.
In recent months, one company after another has come out with products that appear to create holograms—but according to optics experts, most do not use true holography to create their three-dimensional (3D) effects.
Fort Lewis College will be swimming in the big leagues with its share of a new five-year $94-million grant from the National Science Foundation intended to prepare students for careers in the sciences after graduation.
STROBE, the Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging has been awarded a $24 Million grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF. This grant will be used to develop technology in imaging, nano, bio and energy sciences at CU Boulder, which is already recognized as a leader in the field. Physicists, mathematicians, chemists and biologists at CU will work together to develop new technologies and expand research with this sizeable, five-year grant.
UC Berkeley will help lead the new Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging, which aims to tackle major scientific challenges by improving imaging technology.
The center, which includes scientists from UC Berkeley, UCLA and the University of Colorado Boulder, will receive $24 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) over a five-year period, with the possibility of a continuation for five additional years. Naomi S. Ginsberg, associate professor of chemistry and physics and member of the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute at Berkeley, will lead the efforts for UC Berkeley.
Ambitious, complex research that leads to breakthrough discoveries requires large-scale, long-term investments. Today, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announces $94 million in funding to support four new Science and Technology Centers (STCs), partnerships that lay the foundations for advances in fields ranging from cell biology and mechanobiology to particle physics and materials science.
The University of Colorado at Boulder and Fort Lewis College in Durango are two colleges that will share in a National Science Foundation (NSF) imaging science $24 million grant.
The schools, along with four others in the U.S., are launching the Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging, or STROBE, which will have its headquarters at CU-Boulder.
The Science and Technology Center on Real-Time Functional Imaging, known as STROBE, will be headquartered at CU Boulder and will integrate several areas of imaging science and technology, including photon and electron-based imaging, advanced algorithms, big data analysis and adaptive imaging. Named for its relation to stroboscopic imaging, the center is designed to tackle major scientific challenges that have the potential to transform imaging science and technology.
CU Boulder, along with UCLA, the University of California Berkeley, Florida International University, the University of California Irvine and Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, has received the five-year NSF grant.
