FAMU has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Materials Research to fund a project entitled “EAGER: Magnetic Interrogation of Mesoscale Materials.”
EAGER is a materials research program that brings together the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. The grant dollars will fund a pilot program housed at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, the world's highest-powered magnet laboratory, which is located in Tallahassee.
“This will be the beginning of a great research collaboration between FAMU and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, and will have a huge impact on the research capacity of FAMU,” said physics professor Mogus Mochena, the project’s principal investigator.
