Who says bigger is better? At the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the opposite is true. Using state-of-the-art transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), researchers take images of specimens that can be as small as a few billionths of a meter in size—so small that their atomic structure and chemistry are revealed. Materials scientists use this information to develop new nanotechnologies and pursue answers to fundamental energy challenges.
