The Nano Center at the University of Minnesota (MNC) and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering at North Dakota State University (CNSE) have joined forces to offer state-of-the-art facilities for applied nanotechnology.


The two Centers offer a full suite of tools for fabricating micro- and nanoelectronic devices. including thin film deposition, photolithographic patterning, and wet and dry etching. Each Center also offers a unique speciality for work in applied nanotechnology:


► CNSE offers tools, facilities, and expertise for advanced chip packaging and assembly. More details can be found on the "Chip Packaging" page and at the CNSE website


►MNC has labs, instrumentation, and experts in the areas of nanoparticles and the biological/biomedical applications of nanoscience. Find out more on the "NanoBio" page or by visiitng the MNC website.


The labs and tools of both Centers are open to all qualified users. We welcome researchers from industry and other academic institutions.
