An article from the Environmental News Network on nanoscale science and technology research at U.S. national laboratories under the Department of Energy ("U.S. national labs use nanoscience to study how to help environment", 19 July 2001) appears on the Small Times website. It provides a useful overview of work being done as part of the new U.S. Department of Energy's Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Initiative. Facilities covered include the new program at Brookhaven, Oak Ridge, and the new Joint Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JINN) established by the Pacific Northwest National Lab and the University of Washington.
The PNNL has established an extensive website that provides much useful information about JINN and other nanotech-related programs at the DoE national labs.
