The Center for Nanotechnology and Quantum Materials at Wake Forest University

Who are we?


I. NANOTEQ is a Shared Instrumentation Facility. A core mission is to provide access to a broad suite of nationally competitive capabilities in nano-sciences. These include:

1. High resolution imaging and analytical characterization - HRTEM/STEM, STM/AFM, CTEM, XPS, Auger, EDAX, PEELS

2. Cleanroom fabrication facility - class 1000, ISO 6 - with e- beam, FIB and optical lithography, 

3. Optical characterization from fast pump probe spectroscopy to CIE scaling and AM1.5g class A standards.

4. Materials processing and growth

II. NANOTEQ is a hub of activities for various multi-disciplinary teams with multiple PIs. The center supports their activities through community building efforts such as sponsoring visiting scientists each year, regularly arranging for external speakers and holding topical residential conferences. 

1. Quantum Computing Working Group - QCWG

2. Organic Devices Group - ORG

3. NanoMedicalTech Group - MEDs

III. NANOTEQ is a center of education offering a broad range of graduate and advanced undergraduate level courses in the nano-sciences including: electron imaging, scanning probes, XPS/Auger analysis, materials kinetics and Nanomaterials. These courses are coordinated with and enrich the WFU curriculum in Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering.    

IV. NANOTEQ serves the greater community. Facilities are open to all faculty, staff and students of WFU / Atrium-WFBMC as well as to its world-wide network of collaborators and alumni.

NanoteQ Seminar


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. NANOTEQ users represent a broad variety of nano-inspired sciences from across the WFU campuses. The cross-pollination of these fields gives NANOTEQ its unique atmosphere of excitement and discovery...
