Huson Nanotechnology Core Facility

Visit the organization website

    The Huson Nanotechnology Core facility (HNCF) houses a complete suite of Scanning Electron Microscopes and Atomic Force Microscopes for both imaging and creating novel nano-scale structures. The Facility (1200 sq. ft.) contains extensive nano- imaging, manipulation and probing equipment, together with specialized nanofabrication equipment. Many of these instruments in the facility are the first of their kind in Kentucky, and a few instruments are the first of their kind in the United States (Asylum Haptic AFM, Obducat Nanoimprinter).

  • Zeiss Supra 35, Zeiss EVO Extreme Variable Pressure (3000 Pa)
  • Zeiss 1430 scanning electron microscope with Nabity lithography package
  • Capabilities for handling biological samples
