CNF receives 5-year, $7.5M renewal from NSF
The National Science Foundation has renewed its funding for the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (CNF), with a five-year, $7.5 million grant to continue supporting academic and commercial research in nanofabrication – the design and manufacture of devices measured in nanometers.
The grant funds CNF’s participation in the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure(NNCI), a network providing engineers and scientists from academia, government and industry with rapid, hands-on access to advanced nanofabrication tools and staff expertise they couldn’t afford on their own.
