Notre Dame Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano) promotes collaborative research in science and engineering to address unsolved scientific and technical questions with an aim to promote the greater good. Advances in imaging and characterization, multi-physics modeling, synthesis, growth, and nanofabrication are enabling breakthroughs in all science and engineering disciplines. NDnano is where Notre Dame faculty, researchers, and students meet to broaden understanding, discuss multidisciplinary research opportunities, and shape future research directions.

Notre Dame and the CHIPS and Science Act

Notre Dame's history in microelectronics includes leadership of three national research centers funded by the Semiconductor Research Corporation (2008-2023), undergraduate and graduate courses offering both theory and hands-on training, and affiliation with the Midwest Semiconductor Network, which supports the domestic growth of robust semiconductor and microelectronics innovation and supply chain ecosystems.
