The University of Washington has established a strong presence in nanotechnology. Since its inception in 1997, the Center for Nanotechnology has established a level of excellence in teaching, research, and public outreach.
The Center’s primary goal is the instruction and training of future scientists and educators. In April 2001, the UW and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory formed the Joint Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology to study an area of science that holds the promise to dramatically change the way we live in the new century.
A centralized Nanotechnology User Facility (NUF) is located on the UW campus in Fluke Hall. The NUF is equipped with the start-of-the-art imaging tools for mapping nano-structures on the surface.
The NUF is available to the UW community, other academic institutions, researchers, and industrial users as a cost center. NUF staff members will provide training and support regarding the use of the start-of-the-art tools. Users who successfully complete the training sections receive access to reserve the use of the instrumentation online.
