What is the NNCI?
The National Science Foundation (NSF) supports 16 user facility sites, their affiliated partners, and a coordinating office as the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI). The NNCI sites provide researchers from academia, small and large companies, and government with access to university user facilities with leading-edge fabrication and characterization tools, instrumentation, and expertise within all disciplines of nanoscale science, engineering and technology.

SENIC provides modern facilities and a broad collection of tools for both top-down and bottom-up nanoscale science and engineering research in the southeastern US. Access and training promotes a culture of open-access to foster research, education, and outreach in diverse fields.
At its core, NNCI exists to help scientists and engineers from around the country access the state-of-the-art resources necessary to participate in the nanotechnology revolution.
Did you know?
A gecko can walk up a wall and across a ceiling because of nanoscale "spatulas" on the bottom of their feet? One gecko has about one billion of these.
Everyone is invited to join CNF for our 40th anniversary Annual Meeting, Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, at Cornell in Ithaca, NY. We will have a full day of invited talks by prominent national and international scientists covering a broad range of topics, looking back at the development of nanotechnology over the last 40 years and forward to new vistas for nanotechnology in the future.
Nanotechnology is not limited to one particular traditional field of research. In fact, it impacts almost every scientific and engineering discipline.
