Wake Forest University welcomes you to our
NANOTECH Center...

COVID vaccination and updated boosters required for use of facilities...

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 nano-sciences. NANOTECH accomplishes this in a comprehensive way...

NANOTECH manages and enables access to two core user facilities


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 beam and optical lithography, 

NANOTECH manages two large multi-PI shared lab spaces

3. Quantum Devices Lab: Fast optical techniques - ps to fs time resolution, low temperature transport, qubit 


4. Nanomaterials Lab:  synthesis and processing.

NANOTECH offers a working curriculum in the nano-sciences with graduate level courses ranging from electron imaging to the foundations of quantum computing.    

NANOTECH enables the 'community dynamic' around it by supporting multiple visiting scientists each year, regularly arranging for external speakers and holding residential conferences to bring our community together.  

NANOTECH is open to all faculty, staff and students of WFU / Atrium-WFBMC as well as to its world-wide network of collaborators and alumni.

Dr. David Carroll -



Nanotech 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. 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...

Deacon Squirrel has become a defacto mascot of the lab in honor of the many squirrels that nest in the area and call our lab home...
