Our Mission

 

The Nanotech Center is a shared instrumentation facility for the WFU community. It provides a multi-campus, regional, focus for research and discovery in ...

green technologies, 

quantum information technologies,

biomedical devices 

 

The Center enables excellence in R&D through the resource development of four CORE labs:

 

  • Materials synthesis and processing,

  • Cleanroom and microfabrication,

  • Analytical electron microscopy, x-ray and Auger analysis,

  • Optical testing.

An extensive outreach program of workshops, seminars, and curricular offerings enhances NANOTECH's engagement among users and cross-seeds new ideas and techniques within the community.

Fee Structure

The facilities are supported primarily by user fees. However, the University supplements operations for reduced fee access for its faculty, staff, and students. In some circumstances fees may be waved altogether. Thus, research financing should never impede access to good scientific tools.  

Governance

The Nanotech Center does not have members in the usual sense. Its users are Center members. Operations of the Center are governed by an oversight Board consisting of faculty (representatives of different user groups), outside scientists, the director, a grad student representative. This group is intended to represent the interests of all stakeholders: users, administrators, staff, students.

Founded in 2004, the Nanotech Center was among the first research facilities in NC to be built for the safe handling and containment of nanomaterials.
