Introduction and Overview

Director's Welcome

Chris Ober, CNF Director

As Director of the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF), I would like to welcome you to our facility’s website. We are part of the NNCI network and one of the nation’s premier nanofabrication sites.

Here you will find information about our many tools and techniques. We can do things that many other centers cannot. You will also find how to become a user of the facility. We do remote jobs and we have a community of contractors who can build things on order.

Information is also provided about our outreach activities including our REU programs, our annual user’s meeting and our twice yearly short course. Teachers can request copies of our educational publication, Nanooze.

We hope you become a member of our growing community of users.

Christopher Ober
Lester B. Knight Director
