NCN@Berkeley is a new collaborative node for computational nanoscience at the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN), a multi-institutional NSF consortium based at Purdue University.
The mission of the NCN is to connect theory, experiment, and computation in a way that makes a difference to the future of nanotechnology. As part of the NSF's infrastructure for the National Nanotechnology Initiative, the NCN engages the community through workshops and seminars and novel educational resources.
NCN@Berkeley is hosted jointly by the Center for Integrated Nanomechanical Systems (COINS) at UC-Berkeley, and The Molecular Foundry Theory Facility at LBNL. Our role is to leverage substantial on-going research efforts in the electronic structure theory of nanostructures already underway, as well as disseminate and integrate computational tools into some of the top experimental programs in nanoscience worldwide.
