4th Annual Lurie Nanofabrication Facility Users Symposium

By November 28, 2016 No Comments

The University of Michigan Lurie Nanofabrication Facility (LNF) offers easy access to equipment, processes and expert staff support for research on semiconductors, MEMS and microsystems, microfluidic/nanofluidic systems, III-V compound devices, organic materials and devices and advanced coating, patterning, nanofabrication technologies and bio applications. It is available for use by research groups from universities, government, and industry, and provides expertise to help and advise researchers with their projects.

Building upon the success of earlier events, we continue our annual tradition of bringing the whole Lurie Nanofabrication Facility community together to learn about each other’s work and celebrate the wide variety of research being done at the LNF. The symposium is open to all, and LNF tours can be scheduled at the end of the symposium for those interested. Food will be provided.

On Thursday, December 1, join LNF at the prestigious Gerald Ford Library from 10am to 4:30pm for the 4th Annual Lurie Nanofabrication Facility Users Symposium and hear a keynote speech, listen to fellow users’ presentations, attend a poster sessions and enjoy excellent food! The keynote speaker, Prof. Mark Kushner, will talk about “The Role of Plasma Modeling in the Innovation Cycle for Nanofabrication.”
