The Stanford Nanofabrication Facility serves academic, industrial, and governmental researchers across the U.S. and around the globe. More than a lab, it's a vibrant research community. We are supported by NSF through the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network.
National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network
Our mission is to support the fabrication, synthesis, and characterization of nanoscale devices and materials for both academic and industrial users. We are also charged with providing hands-on training in nanotechnology processes to all qualified users.
The Nanofabrication Center is part of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN), a group of fourteen nanotechnology labs located around the country and supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). These labs represent part of the NSF’s substantial investment in nanotechnology research and training.
The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) is a collective of fourteen universitybased facilities with the mission to enable rapid advancements in nanoscale science, technology and engineering through open and efficient access for fabrication. It provides facilitiesbased infrastructure resources that are openly accessible to researchers from academia, small and large companies, national laboratories, and others.
