The Nanofabrication Center (NFC) and Center for Nanostructure Applications (CNA) are joining to form the Minnesota Nano Center (MNC).
and Particle Measurement Short Courses
August 19-21, 2013
This is an updated version of the short course that has been held annually since 1978. Participants will have the opportunity to gain theoretical understanding of aerosol property and behavior and receive practical training on skills to sample, measure, and characterize airborne particulate matter in a variety of applications.
Badger is replacing Coral. Sunday, March 10 will be the last day we will be using Coral for the MNC lab management system. Starting next week when MNC labs open after the maintenance shutdown, we will be using a new system called Badger. Fortunately Badger is very similar to Coral, and you will not find many differences between the two. To create your new Badger account, follow the instructions below. If you have problems or questions, please email email@example.com or stop by the MNC office.
Inside the University of Minnesota's Minnesota Nano Center: Take a look inside the University of Minnesota's Minnesota Nano Center, a state of the art facility dedicated to the design, fabrication and testing of small-scale devices.

Experimental Physics and Nanotechnology building construction begins. Highlights of the building include 43,000 square feet of modern and highly flexible physics laboratories and laboratory support space and more than 15,000 square feet of nanotechnology research labs (including a 5,000 square foot clean room). All together, the facility will contain about 40 new research laboratories. When built, this new state-of-the-art building will make a significant impact in advancing research and educating the next generation of high-tech workers in the state.
