Here is the necessary information for PTL-EFRC Authors.
To be included as an PTL-EFRC publication, paper acknowledgements for the DOE's support must be carefully worded. Please provide the basic funding reference information and indicate the type of the PTL EFRC funding (solely/primarily/secondarily) for the research. (see example below)
“This work, including all theoretical modeling, electronic measurements, and spectral analyses, was primarily supported as part of Super Terrific Center for Energy Research (STCfER), an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences (BES), under Award Number DE-SC0012345. Materials synthesis and x-ray crystallography were supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences, under Award Number DE-SC 0054321. The research reported here also made use of the shared spectroscopic facilities of University X’s Center for Materials Sciences (National Science Foundation DMR 8900111). A.B.C. gratefully acknowledges the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) fellowship for financial support.”
At minimum, please use this wording describing the grant and credit the level of support provided:
"This work was (solely/primarily/secondarily) supported by the DOE ‘Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits’ Energy Frontier Research Center under grant DE-SC0019140."
If space permits, please include more information:
"This work is part of the 'Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits' Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences under Award Number DE-SC0019140."
In this case, please clearly delineate which portion of the research (personnel, materials, processing, or technique) was funded by the PTL-EFRC.
Clarifying what aspect of the research is part of the PTL-EFRC (preferred):
"The optical design was supported by the DOE ‘Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits’ Energy Frontier Research Center under grant DE-SC0019140; the device fabrication was supported by......; and the experimental measurements were supported by......."
Clarifying which authors are part of the PTL-EFRC:
"A.A.A. was supported as part of the DOE "Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits' Energy Frontier Research Center under grant DE-SC0019140...."
Please include the "U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences" as the funding source and the funding classification (solely/primarily/secondarily). Note that this work is part of the "Photonics at Thermodynamic Limits Energy Frontier Research Center." The official PTL-EFRC logo and PTL slide template are available for download above.
