Researchers at the International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN) and their partners in academia, industry, and national laboratories have access to excellent user facilities for characterization based on electron, ion, and photon radiation, as well as scanning probe techniques. Shared facilities are available for maintaining mechanical/electronic scattering and biophysics/biochemistry instrumentation. The IIN has provided support for major instrumentation housed in many of these shared facilities. Some of the available facilities are listed below, including links to their sites.
There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom" was a lecture given by physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman at an American Physical Society meeting at Caltech on December 29,1959. Feynman considered the possibility of direct manipulation of individual atoms. The talk is considered to be a groundbreaking event in the history of nanotechnology, as it inspired the conceptual beginnings of the field decades later.
