Your NY home for technology
Columbia Nano Labs
Columbia University's Research Initiative in NanoTechnology (CNI) represents an interdisciplinary community dedicated to advancing research & development in Nanoscale Science & Engineering for over a quarter of a century. To support its research community, Columbia has invested in a set of user shared facilities that offer advanced instrumentation in sophisticated labs with highly-professional technical staff available to assist. While Columbia has always made these facilities available to other universities, the start-up community, & industry partners, such external use is burgeoning.
To learn more about innovative research in nanophotonics, 2D materials, bio-electronics, & more as well as how Columbia researchers, start-ups, & industry collaborators can use the Columbia Clean Room, Materials Characterization Facility, & Electron Microscopy Facility, please join us on October 29th in the Davis Auditorium (CEPSR Building - 4th floor) for our first annual Industry Day.
