The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF) is a national user facility that supports a broad range of nanoscale science and technology projects by providing state-of-the-art resources coupled with expert staff support. 2014 will mark our 37th year in operation. Research at CNF encompasses physical sciences, engineering, and life sciences, and has a strong inter-disciplinary emphasis.
The InterNano Directory of Experts and Organizations is a listing of both researchers and research organizations that are engaged in nanomanufacturing.
XiGo Nanotools was founded by Sean Race and Dr. David Fairhurst in 2005 with the mission to provide new innovative “tools” for the emerging nanomaterials industry. The Acorn Area is designed to analyze the wetted surface area of concentrated dispersions with little or no sample preparation, providing a viable complementary technique to BET surface area, analyzing nanoparticles as they are made or used, dispersed in liquids. Our goal is to provide scientists, researchers, and corporations with tools that are easy to use and serve as wide and diverse a customer base as possible.
DESY is one of the world’s leading accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety – from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behaviour of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life. The accelerators and detectors that DESY develops and builds are unique research tools. The facilities generate the world’s most intense X-ray light, accelerate particles to record energies and open completely new windows onto the universe.

Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution. Wyatt provides in-line multi-angle static light scattering - SEC-MALS; field flow fractionation (separation with no stationary phase) - FFF-MALS; composition gradients for interaction analysis - CG-MALS; high-throughput dynamic light scattering - DLS; high-sensitivity electrophoretic mobility - MP-PALS; differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
It has been established as an academic collaboration between North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Both Universities are classified by the Carnegie Foundation as “research universities with high research activity.” JSNN builds on the strengths of the two universities in the basic sciences and in engineering to offer an innovative, cross-disciplinary graduate program that will train scientists in various emerging areas of nanoscience and nanoengineering.
Industrial production of graphene nanotubes
The pilot industrial facility for single walled carbon nanotubes synthesis named “Graphetron 1.0” was installed in the Nanomodified Materials Centre at the Technopark of Novosibirsk Akademgorodok, in the R&D centre of OCSiAl.
This is the world's largest facility producing more that 1 tons of single wall carbon nanotubes per year. The successful operation of “Graphetron 1.0” has provided experimental proof of the unlimited scaling potential of our synthesis technology.
Gigaphoton Inc. was founded in 2000 as a leading-edge technology company to support the semiconductor industry in the 21st century. Since then, we at Gigaphoton have been developing and marketing user-friendly, highly innovative laser light sources and delivering them to major lithography tool suppliers in the global semiconductor industry. In addition, we have been aggressively working on the development and mass-production of Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) light sources as the next-generation lithography light sources.
SAMCO was founded by Osamu Tsuji in 1979 as the Semiconductor And Materials COmpany (SAMCO). From its modest beginnings in a garage in Kyoto, Japan, SAMCO has grown into a $50 million corporation with more than 150 high-level design and production research associates at its corporate headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, sales offices in Tokyo, Tokai, and satellite offices in Kanagawa, Tsukuba, and Sunnyvale, California. The Silicon Valley research and development facility in Sunnyvale was opened in 1987.
