Michigan Tech's shared and core facilities include labs and equipment that expand nanotechnology learning with hands-on applications. Several advanced learning courses take advantage of spaces equipped for our strong emphasis on broad-range nanoscale science and engineering initiatives, including micro- and nano- scaled research. Students benefit from access to analysis and measurement resources in our world-class research facilities and labs, from photonic and piezoelectric structures to nanoelectronic field emission characterization, and using microanalytical and X-ray instruments:
- ACMAL: Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory
- Integrated Magneto-Photonics Laboratory
- Materials Physics and Laser Physics Laboratory
- Microfabrication Facility
Undergraduate students participating classes related to the nano minor perform research or engage in demonstrations using a Nanosurf easyScan II atomic force microscope and a Nanosurf easyScan II scanning tunneling microscope.
