Contact us: 509-375-3776

Researchers worldwide predict that nanoscience and technology soon will impact nearly all aspects of our lives. PNNL brings expertise in materials synthesis and characterization to bear on the opportunities in nanoscience and technology. By precisely manipulating atoms and molecules-the very building blocks of nature-our research could yield safe, just-in-time sources of hydrogen for a wide range of energy applications, new instruments to observe chemical processes in living cells, and miniaturized sensors to detect pathogens in foods and the environment.
