SENIC and NNCI

In partnership with the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology at the Georgia Institute of Technology, JSNN created the Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor (SENIC). SENIC provides open access to leading-edge fabrication and characterization tools, instrumentation, and staff expertise within all disciplines of nanoscale science, engineering and technology. Access and training promotes a culture of open access to foster research, education, and outreach in diverse fields. SENIC’s vision is to strengthen and accelerate discoveries in science and engineering across the US, to allow technology-based innovations to reach the market quicker, and to provide education, outreach and SEI programs in nanotechnology with a focus on the southeastern US. For more information on the NNCI program, please visit Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor.

SENIC is one of the national sites of the National Science Foundation (NSF) National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) program. NNCI is an NSF-funded network of 16 academic nanofabrication and characterization sites and their partners, formed to advance research in nanoscale science, engineering and technology. Since the core mission of the NSF NNCI program is to create an open national user facility network, JSNN welcomes users from other academic and non-academic institutions to become users of JSNN facilities. For more information on the NNCI program, please visit www.nnci.net.

Since JSNN and SENIC are supported by NSF through the NNCI program, this support should be acknowledged in publications and presentations resulting from work done in whole or in part at the JSNN facilities or by using other JSNN resources. The suggested acknowledgement may read: “This work was performed in whole/part at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, a member of the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), which is supported by the National Science Foundation (Grant ECCS-2025462).”

In presentations, listing JSNN and/or SENIC along with your other acknowledgements is sufficient. If you wish to use the JSNN and/or SENIC logo, please email us at jsnntools@ncat.uncg.edu.
