Mission

Our mission is to enable rapid advancements in science, engineering and technology at the nano-scale by efficient access to nanotechnology infrastructure, through the following aims:

  • Provide facilities and expertise for nano- science and technology research, in fabrication, analysis, and computation.
  • Foster a dynamic community that welcomes researchers from all disciplines and all universities, industry, and government.
  • Promote new research and encourage new researchers in nano-science and technology.
  • Inform and educate the public, targeting researchers of the future, especially those in underserved communities.
  • Question and examine the implications of these new technologies in society and ethics.
