LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The physics department at New Mexico State University has received a $300,000 research grant from the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Las Cruces Sun-News reported Sunday that the grant was awarded to a team of faculty led by Professor Stefan Zollner.
Zollner says the grant was given by the DOD's Army Research Office.
He says the funds will go toward buying a new high-resolution X-ray diffractometer and reflectometer.
He says the instrument can measure distances between atoms and can be applied to a range of materials.
University officials say the device will help in a variety of research areas at the university.
