Every year in honor of National Nanotechnology Day on October 9th, the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) hosts a Plenty of Beauty at the Bottom image contest to celebrate the beauty of the micro and nanoscale. Check out this year’s winners and featured images.
To support the use of nanotechnology tools to develop innovative, new technologies, the Northwest Nanotechnology Infrastructure (NNI) is offering seed grants to new, first-time users for work to be conducted in our fabrication or characterization facilities. These grants are designed to help users build and characterize prototypes, obtain preliminary results and conduct proof of concept studies.
NNI is one of 16 sites in the National Science Foundation’s National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) program. As the Pacific Northwest node in NSF’s NNCI network, NNI includes world-class facilities at the University of Washington including the Washington Nanofabrication Facility and the Molecular Analysis Facility.
The deadline to apply is March 1, 2022.
Additional details regarding eligibility, guidelines, and selection, as well as the link to apply, can be found here.
It’s National Nanotechnology Day! Celebrate by listening to our very own Dan Ratner, UW Professor of Bioengineering, on this week’s podcast from the National Nanotechnology Initiative as he talks about his passion for sharing the awesome power of nanotechnology with the next generation of scientists and engaged citizens.
In honor of National Nanotechnology Day on October 9th, the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) is hosting the Plenty of Beauty at the Bottom image contest. Referencing Richard Feynman’s 1959 lecture, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom,” this image contest celebrates the beauty of the micro and nanoscale.
Workshop attendees will learn the nuts and bolts of surface characterization including commonly used methods and data analysis techniques. Lectures are accompanied by demonstrations on MAF instruments to provide attendees with a better understanding of the materials covered in workshop lectures.
The University of Washington currently has an opening for the director of the Washington Nanofabrication Facility, a world-class facility in the NSF-supported National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure network. The WNF director will oversee all aspects of cleanroom operation and supervise a staff of more than 10 technical and administrative members.
NanoES is one of 16 primary sites in the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI). Learn more about what NNCI is and their goals for nanotechnology in this promotional video.
The 3rd annual NNCI conference will be held in Seattle at the University of Washington, September 13-14, 2018!
The University of Louisville, a partner in the NSF National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) network, is recruiting students in the interdisciplinary field of advanced micro/nano manufacturing engineering through exciting hands-on research projects with applications in healthcare, energy, advanced manufacturing, security and the environment.
