Research in the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (Nano-CEMMS) at the University of Illinois addresses a central problem in the development of nanotechnology: how to assemble structures at sizes smaller than can be seen (or transduced) and manipulated (or transcribed). The Center's goal is to develop a reliable, robust and cost-effective nanomanufacturing system to make nanostructures from multiple materials. The Nano-CEMMS Center is an NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center and is a partnership of the University of Illinois, the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University and North Carolina Agricultural and Technological State University. Each partner offers unique facilities, eminent scholars and financial resources to support the Center's research. One of the Center's core missions is to develop a diverse U.S. workforce of educators, scientists, engineers, and practitioners to advance nanomanufacturing technology in the U.S. and beyond. Nano-CEMMS provides a wide range of human resource development activities targeting high school and community college teachers and students, undergraduates and graduate students. Industrial partners provide guidance and financial support for the Center's research.
