Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials
at Wake Forest University
Wake Forest University
welcomes you to our NANOTECH Center
Nanotechnology is the synthesis of tools and machines at the 10(-9) meter scale. Molecular Materials are materials that are designed and created through the aggregation and assembly of large molecular (nano) species - like an ordered composite. Together, these advances represent the greatest revolution in materials physics since the discovery of quantum mechanics.
NANOTECH is a Shared Instrumentation Facility of the Wake Forest University research community. Its core mission is to provide access to a broad suite of nationally competitive capabilities in...
1. Nanomaterials - synthesis and processing,
2. High resolution imaging and analytical characterization - HRTEM/STEM, STM/AFM, CTEM, XPS, Auger, EDAX, PEELS
3. Cleanroom fabrication - class 1000, ISO 6 - iline, 365nm optical lithography,
4. Fast optical characterization - ps to fs time resolution spectroscopy, laser based ARPES
NANOTECH also offers an extensive curriculum in the nano-sciences together with several outreach programs.
NANOTECH occupies a dedicated building located at 501 Deacon Blvd, in Winston-Salem NC, adjacent to the Reynolda Campus of WFU. It is open to all faculty, staff and students of WFU / Atrium-WFBMC.

COVID / Monkeypox Response:
NANOTECH follows all University protocals. Proof of COVID vaccination required. If exposed a week quarantine and negative test is requested before returning to the lab.
Thursday, October 27, together with the CFM seminar, at 12:00 pm in Olin 101. Lunch will be provided beginning at 11:30am in the Olin Lobby.
Our guest speaker is Prof. Dr. Vojislav Krstic from the FAU Erlangen. He will speak on "Helical nanostructure: PT-violation and (quantum) cooperative dichroism signatures".
A Community of Researchers
Gamma ray scintillators, quantum computers, artificial organs, time crystals, lighting devices, thermal-solar collectors, and more. NANOTECH users represent a broad variety of nano-inspired sciences from across the WFU campuses. The cross-pollination of these fields gives NANOTECH its unique atmosphere of excitement and discovery...
