The CNF is supported by the National Science Foundation through the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI). This support should be acknowledged in posters, publications and presentations that are made possible by work performed at CNF.

  • Acknowledgements of CNF use are an important piece of continuing funding for this facility.
  • Formal publications require a statement acknowledging CNF (and NSF) support. INCLUDING THE GRANT NUMBER IS CRITICAL.
  • Staff contributions (above and beyond training) also require recognition and acknowledgment. 

For papers, a suggested acknowledgement reads:

This work was performed in part at the Cornell NanoScale Facility, a member of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), which is supported by the National Science Foundation (Grant NNCI-1542081).

If space is a concern, this can be significantly shortened to:

This work was performed in part at Cornell NanoScale Facility, an NNCI member supported by NSF Grant NNCI-1542081. 

In presentations, listing the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility along with your other acknowledgements will suffice. 

On posters, please include our logo (below) and list the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility along with your other acknowledgements.

We thank you for your efforts.
