Abraham announces new Brookhaven Nanocenter

An article on the Small Times website ("U.S. secretary of energy announces $85 million Brookhaven nanocenter", by J. Mason, 17 June 2002) reports that U.S. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham visited Brookhaven National Laboratory on 14 June 2002 to announce that BNL's proposed nanocenter will officially move ahead. In remarks to BNL employees after touring the labs on Long Island in New York, Abraham also signaled the Energy Department's growing commitment to developing nanotechnologies that serve U.S. national interests, from bioterror detection to fuel cells that could help reduce dependence on foreign oil.
