NSF National Nanofabrication Users Network (NNUN)

Dr. Rajinder P. Khosla
Program Director, NSF

NSF's National Nanofabrication Users Network (NNUN) is an integrated network of user facilities at Cornell University, Howard University, Pennsylvania State University, Stanford University, and the University of California at Santa Barbara that provides researchers with expertise to fabricate nanometer-scale structures, devices, and circuits, aiding diverse disciplines from engineering to materials to biology. NUNN is supported by the NSF Directorates of Biological Sciences, Engineering, and Mathematical and Physical Sciences. The projects span materials science, physics, chemistry, nanoelectronics, biology, biomedicine, and many other interdisciplinary areas. One of the fast-growing applications of micro- and nanostructures is in the area of biology. It is expected that the interaction and collaboration of these disciplines will have a significant impact in the area of nanotechnology. NNUN was started as a network in April 1994. The network's budget at this time is $3.95 million/year.
