Hello All,

Our first month as an official entity ended last Friday.

A quick look at the numbers for the shared-user facility shows:

  • 20 tools used
  • 220+ unique users
  • 1000+ tool logins
  • ~1600 hours of combined tool use over the 744 hours in the month, which means that an average of 2 tools were in use every hour of every day in March.

Thanks to all for a good beginning.

Atlanta Science Festival 2016 – Thanks

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped us put on our Atlanta Science Festival Event –
“Whats All the Buzz About Nanotechnology” – on March 19th.
A special thanks to Rathi Monikandan and Chris Yang for running the Hitachi tabletop and 8230 SEM’s. Roughly 100 kids and kids-at-heart learned a little about nanotechnology and had fun in the process.

Atlanta Science Festival 2016

Hello All,
As part of the Atlanta Science Festival, the IEN is hosting an event this Saturday from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. 
It’s called “What’s all the Buzz about nanotechnology”
How do scientists and engineers interact with a world too small for the eyes to see? Learn how at Georgia Tech’s Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology!
The Marcus Microanalysis Suite of the MCF will figure prominently.  If you have, know, or fit the description of a science-interested kid-at-heart, feel free to come by and learn about the fun side of nanotechnology.
