Dr. SANKAR’S 25 YEARS OF FOCUSSED EFFORTS RESULTED IN FRONTIER RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ADVANCED AND NANOMATERIALS

NSF/ERC and CAMSS is housed in the Fort Interdisciplinary Research Center (IRC) at NCAT. The IRC is a modern research facility formed from a complete redesign and modeling of the campus’s old library. The IRC houses the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development and provides on a highly competitive basis, research space for major funded research programs. ERC/CAMSS laboratories occupy 15,000 sq. ft. of this prized location. The fourteen current ERC/CAMSS lab and facilities are interconnected and span 3 of the 4 floors of this building, providing a seamless state of-the-art research infrastructure for interdisciplinary knowledge sharing. The many thrust area labs within this feed each other, yet can stand alone and are listed below. Equipment capabilities and user manuals are documented exhaustively on the ERC/CAMSS websites http://erc.ncat.edu and http://camss.ncat.edu; The Web site also provides the ability for researchers to book time and access to research equipment.
