Welcome to the Midwest Nano Infrastructure Corridor

The Midwest Nano Infrastructure Corridor (MINIC) is a resource for research in nanoscience and technology.

 MINIC is a set of academic laboratories that helps researchers

                           -  develop new micro- and nanoscale devices

                           -  employ advanced chip packaging services

                           -  experiment with new 2-D materials

                           -  make and analyze nanoparticles

                           -  explore the intersection of nanotechnology and biology


MINIC labs are housed at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Minneapolis) and at North Dakota State University (Fargo).


Use this site to learn about our equipment, research facilities, technology expertise, and how to work with us.



MINIC is the upper Midwest node of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure Network, a consortium of sixteen nanotechnology research centers partially supported by the National Science Foundation.
