Brookhaven Laboratory Workshop for Industry Researchers
December 14 - December 17
Do you have an R&D challenge that you can’t solve with traditional commercial techniques? This specialized virtual workshop will offer access to unique x-ray, electron and optical techniques, which are designed for understanding materials in unprecedented ways.
Brookhaven National Laboratory will host a virtual workshop on December 14-17, 2020 for industry researchers to showcase the capabilities and expertise available at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facilities located at Brookhaven Lab.
The workshop is designed to benefit both researchers who have previously used Brookhaven facilities for their work and those who are interested in learning about accessing them for the first time.
The workshop will inform researchers from industry about the leading-edge capabilities and expertise at Brookhaven facilities, and provide details about the mechanisms for accessing them. The workshop will also more broadly introduce participants to DOE programs designed to support industry research.
The workshop agenda will feature presentations from industry users of Brookhaven Lab facilities, question-and-answer sessions, and opportunities to directly hear from Department of Energy program managers for your questions.
Highlighted presentations include:
- Bio and pharmaceuticals
- Nanofabrication; Materials synthesis and characterization
- Innovative Chemistry through Advanced Microscopy Techniques, Ke‐Bin Low, BASF
- Bio‐inspired invisible glass: from nature to commercialization, Calvin Cheng, Edgehog
- Overview of capabilities of NSLS‐II and CFN, John Hill, BNL
- X‐ray diffraction/scattering
- Electron microscopy
- Hard and soft x‐ray spectroscopy
- Advanced UV and x‐ray probes
- Imaging and microscopy
- Advanced optical spectroscopy and microscopy
- Lessons learned as industry users of BNL facilities ‐‐ panel discussion
- DOE SBIR/STTR Program, Manny Oliver, SBIR/STTR Program Office, DOE
- DOE TIR Program, Eli Levine, Advanced Manufacturing Office, DOE
- DOE TCF Program, Zack Baize, Office of Technology Transitions, DOE
- Strategic Partnership Program, Ivar Strand, BNL
- Help desk and other DOE user facilities Q&A
- How to become an industrial user and access facilities – Jun Wang (EPS)
- How to write a good nonproprietary industrial proposal – Lisa Miller (NSLS‐II), Priscilla
The workshop will provide a unique “facilities open house” format, where attendees will spend time remotely in the labs observing Brookhaven’s capabilities in action and engaging in technical discussions with Brookhaven experts. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for attendees to remotely measure their own samples, collecting meaningful data to take home that day.
