The NREC is a university-wide user fabrication and metrology center providing state-of-the-art equipment, professional support personnel and infrastructure to enable multidisciplinary research in nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing methods related to fundamental materials science, sensors, actuators, electronics, bio-systems, medical products, optics and integrated nanoscale systems. The Nanotech I facility supports research projects of faculty, graduates students, undergraduates, and industrial researchers.




The following objectives are being implemented to carry out the mission:

  • Nurturing and enabling multidisciplinary nano related research projects for all interested faculty in all colleges at the University of South Florida.
  • Providing professionally managed state-of-the-art fabrication facilities, analytical instruments and metrology tools for the characterization of nanomaterials.
  • Providing training programs for all interested faculty and students who wish to use the facility.
  • Providing a facility for industrial users working collaboratively with USF faculty to develop competitive processes and products for commercialization of technology.
