Birck Nanotechnology Center

Nearly 160 faculty from 25 Purdue departments utilize the 187,000-square-foot facility to advance nanoscale science to create nanotechnologies addressing societal challenges and opportunities in computing, communications, the environment, security, energy and health.

“In 10 years of operation, the Birck Nanotechnology Center has become a leading research facility, operating 24/7 with graduate and undergraduate students and our best and brightest faculty,” de la Rubia said. “It’s also a key component for Purdue Moves and the university’s focus on world-changing research and transformative STEM education, and a cornerstone for our interdisciplinary activities and industry partnerships in Discovery Park.”
