Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute

Equipment/facility: Facility


Guided by theory and enabled by synthesis, the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute develops new science and technology exploiting the nanoscale. Its researchers inspire students by creating an atmosphere of excitement, fun, and creativity. We design frontier science and technology by teaming globally, and providing a place where physicists, chemists, biologists, ceramicists, metallurgists, and mathematicians join in teams with engineers to solve problems. We function as an engine of economic growth by eliminating boundaries that interfere with the transition from science to technology, and from technology to product.
