What's All the Buzz About Nanotechnology?– Atlanta Science Festival at the IEN 2015

The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology and the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network hosted a family microscopy day at the Marcus Nanotechnology Building in conjunction with the 2015 Atlanta Science Festival. Participants had a chance to explore nanotechnology research, the workings of a cleanroom, and the world-class microscopy facility located in-house. They also had the opportunity to image a sample using the Hitachi TM3000 scanning electron microscope. Here is a gallery collection of our guests images.
