CCNY receives $5 million NSF grant to establish center for nanostructure applications
Date:9/16/2008

NEW YORK, September 16, 2008 The City College of New York (CCNY) announced today that it has received $5 million over five years from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish a new, interdisciplinary research center that will investigate new applications for nanostructures and nanomaterials in sensors and energy systems. Known as CENSES (Center for Exploitation of Nanostructures in Sensors and Energy Systems), the center will also investigate emerging technologies and novel characterization techniques for nanostructures and nanomaterials.

Dr. Daniel L. Akins, Distinguished Service Professor of Chemistry, will serve as the center's Director and Principal Investigator. Serving as co-Principal Investigators will be: Dr. Maria C. Tamargo, Professor of Chemistry; Dr. Alex Couzis, Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Dr. Swapan K. Gayan, Professor of Physics.

"CENSES will focus its efforts on addressing several of the major challenges facing the nation and the world, including sustainable energy technologies and monitoring of health, the environment and national security threats," said Professor Akins in announcing the grant. "Our objective is to become a national resource center for these areas and to collaborate on research and development efforts with a variety of potential partners."

Existing collaborations with the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at Columbia University and the Center for Sustainable Energy at Bronx Community College are being folded into the center, Professor Akins noted. The research efforts have been organized into three areas:

  • Nanomaterials and nanostructures for sensor applications, headed by Professor Tamargo;
  • Nanomaterials and nanostructures in energy systems, headed by Professor Couzis, and
  • Emerging technologies and novel characterization techniques, headed by Professor Gayan.

However, Professor Akins pointed out that there are many synergistic o
