This intensive 3.5 day short course offered by the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility, combines lectures and laboratory demonstrations designed to impart a broad understanding of the science and technology required to undertake research in nanoscience. TCN is an ideal way for faculty, graduate students, post docs and staff members to rapidly come up to speed in many of the technologies that users of the CNF need to employ. Members of the high tech business community will also find it an effective way to learn best practices for success in a nanofab environment. Attendance is open to the general scientific community, but class size is limited.
