Center for Probing the Nanoscale Industrial Affiliates Program

The Center for Probing the Nanoscale (CPN) at Stanford University is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center. CPN scientists develop and apply novel nanoprobes that dramatically improve capabilities to observe, manipulate and control nanoscale objects and phenomena. CPN aims to develop nanoprobes that will become the standard equipment of future research in nanotechnology.

The objective of the CPN Industrial Affiliate program is to support the mutual needs of industry and academia in advancing nanoprobes. The program builds partnerships between Stanford researchers and companies to facilitate the rapid implementation of Center technology for the benefit of society. It offers participation through focused research, workshops, seminars and student recruitment opportunities.
