The Nano @ Stanford training provides rich materials for you to become productive users of the nano@stanford nano-characterisation and nanofabrication facilities and tools. These facilities include Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF), Environment Measurement Facility (EMF), Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF) and Material Analysis Facility (MAF).
The Nano @ Stanford online course teaches foundational principles, topics, concepts and in-depth operating processes for various equipment in the nanofabrication facilities. It also provides the essential processes and tools in SNSF and SNF, further offering training across multiple levels with diverse learning and instruction techniques. Since this training entails a short ten-week span and is self-directed, learners can comfortably partake in it.
Stanford University’s Stanford Online initiative has developed the Nano @ Stanford certification syllabus. The course curriculum will provide value to lab members and learners who seek comprehensive knowledge about characterisation and fabrication. Anyone, whether researchers or students, interested in nanofabrication can enrol and view the study materials to quench their thirst for knowledge.

How it helps
The Nano @ Stanford course benefits learners to better utilize the nano@stanford nanofabrication and nano-characterisation tools and facilities including the SNSF, SNF, EMF and MAF. The programme provides detailed ten-week long training in condensed and digestible units.
Even researchers from other universities and anyone interested in characterization and fabrication will benefit immensely from the learning and training material provided in this course.
Stanford University, US has accredited this program.
Angela Hwang will be your expert instructor for the Nano @ Stanford training. She is the Director of Education and Outreach, National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure site at Stanford University.
Yes. The Nano @ Stanford course provides free access to anyone who wishes to gain extensive knowledge about nano-characterisation and nanofabrication tools, facilities and techniques. You don’t necessarily have to be a lab member of SNSF or SNF. You also don’t need any direct affiliation with Stanford University to pursue this course.
Unfortunately, no. Only SNSF and SNF lab members can be qualified to use the nano@stanford nano-characterisation and nanofabrication tools after this programme.
No, there are none.
