The Wisconsin Centers for Nanoscale Technology (WCNT) supports research both at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and regionally.  Annually serving over 600 users from 150 research groups covering ~50 departments and 9 different schools/colleges, we partner with researchers to provide state-of-the-art instrumentation and technical expertise for characterization and fabrication support for their research programs.  Researchers at UW-Madison using WCNT publish over 800 peer reviewed articles each year.

A sampling of the research enabled by WCNT is given below:
