The ANML is housed in the Micron Center for Materials Research and in the Micron Engineering Center at Boise State University. Research in the ANML focuses on discovering new fundamental knowledge which can enable advanced nanotechnologies, and utilizing advanced manufacturing methods to enable low-cost novel devices and systems. Our goals include designing new materials and printing them for thermal energy harvesting, thermal management systems, low-power printable and flexible electronic/optoelectronic devices, and chemical, biological, and radiation sensors. We integrate “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches to materials synthesis with advanced materials characterization techniques to elucidate the structure-property-processing-performance correlations of atomic layer materials and their heterostructures. Our manufacturing goals are primarily inclined toward roll-to-roll (R2R) manufacturing. We are committed to performing high-quality research without sacrificing the quality of life.

Resources for Researchers
- Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity in NASA Assisted Programs: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Related Laws. This brochure lays out NASA’s obligations under the civil rights laws pertaining to federally assisted programs and activities. It provides program beneficiaries with information on how to file a discrimination complaint with directly with NASA, should they wish to do so. The brochure also has a companion poster, Equal Opportunity in NASA Assisted Programs, which provides similar information.
- Title IX and STEM: Promising Practices. This publication provides a host of promising practices for creating greater gender diversity and more inclusive STEM program environments. The practices are culled from NASA’s many Title IX compliance reviews of educational institution grant recipients.
- Title IX and STEM: A Guide for Conducting Title IX Self-Evaluations. This publication, the second in our Title IX and STEM series, provides detailed guidance and instructions for conducting Title IX self-evaluations in conformity with Title IX requirements, to help STEM programs in their gender equity efforts. The fillable version allows for the self-evaluation to be completed electronically.
