Title: Welcome to CNF Button: Lab User


The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF) is a national user facility that supports a broad range of nanoscale science and technology projects by providing state-of-the-art resources coupled with expert staff support. 2014 will mark our 37th year in operation. Research at CNF encompasses physical sciences, engineering, and life sciences, and has a strong inter-disciplinary emphasis. Over 800 users per year (50% of whom come from outside Cornell) use the fabrication, synthesis, computation, characterization, and integration resources of CNF to build structures, devices, and systems from atomic to complex length-scales.

Every week, several new users coming from academia, industry, and government laboratories learn to use the tools available in the facility to carry out their research projects. CNF is open 24 hours a day, and provides the interactive and exciting learning and practicing environment critical to successful cutting-edge research. External users typically spend a week to two at CNF to complete their work with strong staff support. Many projects can also be accomplished remotely.

We also now have a remote office at the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. The link is on the photo at left.

Please consider exploring the Societal and Ethical Issues of Nanotechnology by clicking on the SEI image below left.

A video tour of the facility is available for viewing over the web. This 10 minute video will give you a brief introduction to what types of equipment and processes are available at the facility.

We invite you to explore this web site and our facility.

Gifts to Cornell NanoScale Facility are now accepted via the link at left (GIFTS).

The research accomplishments will give you a short introduction to the research, the equipment index more on the detailed capabilities, and the nanocourse a practical introduction to the technology. Other links and the search engine will lead you to a variety of information related to nanoscale science and technology. Click on the “getting started” tab above to find out what CNF can do for you!
