A new innovation space for the fabrication and characterization of materials at the nano scale.

MIT will construct an integrated nanoscience and nanotechnology facility with a mission to redefine the frontiers of research, exploration, education, and innovation. Dedicated exclusively to experimentation and instruction, MIT.nano will support the research activities of 2,000 members of the MIT community. It will occupy the footprint of Building 12, just steps from the Infinite Corridor. The 200,000-square-foot building will house state-of-the-art cleanroom, imaging, and prototyping facilities supporting research with nanoscale materials and processes — in fields including energy, health, life sciences, quantum sciences, electronics, and manufacturing.
