Facilities available through the Institute for Functional Nanomaterials (IFN)

The IFN is making a major investment in the following state-of-the-art nanoscopy tools that will service the academic research and industry of the Jurisdiction. This Nanoscopy Facility was initiated by the 2003-2008 CNM-NASA-URC. The instruments are expected to be installed by Spring of 2009 and fully-operational by Summer of 2009.


IFN also provides capacity for Computational Nano Science through the High Performance
Computing Facility (HPCf), a shared research facility providing high performance computing
resources, Internet2 connectivity, technical support, training, and application development
services to researchers at all UPR campuses. The HPCf houses the Internet2 GigaPOP for PR. All
UPR campuses are directly connected to the HPCf with high-bandwidth connections, UPR-RP
and UPR-M at OC-3 (155 Mbps) and UPR-C at DS-3 (45 Mbps) speeds. HPCf also houses
supercomputers with different architectures and performance characteristics.
