NanoTechnology Center


The Nanotechnology Center is a focused, key enabler of innovation in the NANO Research Clusters of the WFU faculties. So while some service work is carried out by Nanotechnology Center personnel, most of the work in the Center is by faculty in the topical areas of:

    Emerging Exotic Materials,

    Green/sustainable power technologies,

    Biomedical technologies

Research Staff

Dr. David  Carroll - Director

Dr.  Corey Hewitt - Facilities Manager

The Center also has a number of Research Professors, associated/appointed within specific departments at WFU and physically located at the Center.
