The Center for Nanoscale
Systems in Information Technology was established at Cornell in
2001 by the National Science Foundation as one of 6 interdisciplinary
Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSEC’s) to address
the existing challenges and opportunities that are to be found
in nanotechnology research and development. The Center for Nanoscale
Systems is supported by NYSTAR the New York State Office of Science,
Technology & Academic Research.
Cornell’s Center for Nanoscale Systems is positioned to be a major leadership component of the overall Federal effort collectively known as the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
The Center for Nanoscale Systems is one of several complementary and synergistic nanotechnology initiatives and national collaborations at Cornell University:
• Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology Facility (CNF)
• Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC)
• Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCMR)
• National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN)
