Image of Howard University's NanoExpress, a mobile science theme park.

The NanoExpress, operated by Howard University, is a mobile science theme park exhibiting some of the latest science and technology at the nano dimension in a variety of disciplines. It is part of a major campaign designed to provide information on the current state of research and development in nanotechnology and this award will provide upgrades to the mobile lab's capabilities.

Micrograph image of alpha-Zirconium phosphate micro-crystals.

Micro-crystals of alpha-Zirconium phosphate, created at the Interfaces in Materials PREM Center at Texas State University, are a source of platelets with nanometer dimensions. The micrograph image shows that the lab group has control over the platelet diameter, which is an important feature in nano-structured materials for catalysis, environmental and energy related applications.

Image of popcorn-shaped nanoparticles, black dots, that detects a type of Salmonella bacteria.

This image shows that popcorn-shaped nanoparticles (C), developed at the Jackson State University PREM, can selectively detect a type of Salmonella bacteria. A color change indicates whether or not lettuce is contaminated with Salmonella bacteria (A) or is safe to eat (B).
