Stanford University and IBM Corporation, with funding from the National Science Foundation, have founded the Center for Probing the Nanoscale to achieve five principal goals.
· To develop novel probes that dramatically improve our capability to observe, manipulate, and control nanoscale objects and phenomena.
· To educate the next generation of scientists and engineers regarding the theory and practice of these probes.
· To apply these novel probes to answer fundamental questions and to shed light on technologically relevant issues.
· To disseminate our knowledge and to transfer our technology so that other research scientists and engineers can make use of our advances, and so that corporations can manufacture and market our novel probes.
· To inspire thousands of middle school students by training their teachers at a Summer Institute.
