Are you new to Brookhaven’s user facilities? Or do you already use NSLS-II and want to know more about what CFN has to offer? Or vice-versa? Are you interested in how BNL’s user facilities can help advance your research? Then this workshop is for you! 

The goal of this workshop is to provide college faculty, postdocs, graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school teachers with an entry-level introduction on how to access the research tools made available at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN).  Through a series of technique-based lectures and “flash” applications talks from current users, participants will learn about the most popular techniques, scientific applications, and the proposal submission process. Completion of this workshop will give you the knowledge necessary to become the next NSLS-II and/or CFN user.

Workshop Organizers: Lisa Miller, BNL/NSLS-II; Aleida Perez, BNL/OEP; Priscilla Antunez, BNL/CFN
