Florida State / Integrative NanoScience Institute
A Few Announcements
We have recently updated information in all areas of our website. It will be kept up to date with all the new and exciting things happening with our Florida State University Integrated NanoScience Institute. We currently have news of an honor award and grant awards.
EIEG Grant Received
INSI Professors Sourav Saha, Jeoffrey Strouse, and Peng Xiong, and Materials researchers Professors Harry Kroto, Mike Shatruk, and Theo Siegrist received a $48,000 equipment grant from EIEG and College of Arts and Sciences to procure a state-of the-art IPCE/QE instrument that can measure the efficiencies of photovoltaic devices (solar cells).
INSI Professor Sourav Saha and co-workers’ landmark paper on defining the boundaries of different modes of tunable noncovalent interactions between anions and electron-deficient naphthalenediimide receptors is featured on the cover of the prestigious Journal of the American Chemical Society(2012, Vol. 134, Issue 33).

Ken Knappenberger Receives NSF Career Award
Dr. Kenneth L. Knappenberger, Jr., has been selected to receive the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The CAREER Program offers the NSF's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations. In addition to this award recognition, the NSF will provide funding to support the Knappenberger Group’s research and education initiatives to describe the properties of metal nanostructures.
