Shared Facilities:


Stanford Nano Center (SNC)
  • Description —The Stanford Nano Center (SNC) shared facilities include some of the most advanced nanoscale patterning and characterization equipment available, complementing the nearby Stanford Nanocharacterization Lab (SNL) and Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF). Much of the space is specifically designed to provide for the stringent requirements on the control of vibration, acoustics, and electromagnetic interference that are essential for the manipulation of matter down to the molecular and atomic scale. The instruments are available to internal Stanford users as well as external users from industry and academia.
  • Location — Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, 348 Via Pueblo, Stanford, CA 94305-4088
