Keck Laboratory for Combinatorial Nanosynthesis and Multiscale Characterization to be established at the University of Maryland

The University of Maryland has received a $750,000 award from the W. M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles to establish the new Keck Laboratory for Combinatorial Nanosynthesis and Multiscale Characterization. Conceived by Professors Ichiro Takeuchi (MSE), Gary W. Rubloff (MSE/ISR), and Ellen Williams (Physics), the Keck Laboratory will be a centerpiece for pioneering research which extends campus strengths in combinatorial materials science, scanning nanoprobes, and highly controlled materials synthesis profoundly into the nanoscale domain to enable fundamentally new insights into the behavior of materials at the nanoscale. It will be located in the new Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building, scheduled to open in January 2005.

The W. M. Keck Foundation is one of the nation's largest philanthropic organizations. Established in 1954 by the late William Myron Keck, founder of The Superior Oil Co., the Foundation's grantmaking is focused primarily on the areas of medical research, science, and engineering. More...
