The Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) for Directed Assembly of Nanostructures works within the framework of the US National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) and the strategic funding plans of government agencies to realize our leaders' vision of a more educated, prosperous, secure, and healthy society. The National Science Foundation is the primary ncontributor to NSEC funding through the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center grant, DMR-0642573. New York State's Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) contributes significant funds as well. These federal and state funds, leveraged with those of industrial and academic partners, enables the NSEC to integrate research, technology dissemination, and education to serve as a national resource for fundamental knowledge and applications spanning the design, synthesis, directed assembly, and characterization of new functional nanostructured materials, architectures, assemblies, and devices.
