Working with MiNIC
The R&D facilities of MiNIC are open to all qualified users. We welcome potential projects from industrial and academic researchers.
Why use MiNIC?
MiNIC is a resource for companies and researchers that want to pursue work in nanoscience and microtechnology, but do not have the required tools or expertise. MiNIC offers easy fee-for-service usage, removing the obstacles of capital equipment acquisition, maintenance costs, and long-term commitments.
Ways to work with us
There are a number of ways to work on an R&D project at MINIC
- Do-it-yourself - where you can receive equipment training and carry out your R&D activities independently and on your own schedule.
- Assisted project - in which our staff does the work in consultation with you. After your device is designed, staff will fabricate the prototype devices for testing in our "nanomachine shop."
- Sponsored research - if your project involves more basic research and could benefit by the involvement of University faculty, we can help assemble a project team that includes University faculty and staff.
