Guided Tour of the Marcus Nanotechnology Building at Georgia Tech

Advances in nanotechnology have the potential to revolutionize medicine, contribute to the protection of the Earth's environment, provide new approaches in energy creation and storage and improve the size, performance, and effectiveness of many other traditional consumer and industrial applications.

The Marcus Nanotechnology Building, operated by the Institute of Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech, houses an innovative combination of 15,000 square feet of traditional inorganic cleanroom space and a cleanroom designed for interdisciplinary life sciences and nanotechnology research.

Please join us for a tour of this world-class facility guided by IEN staff. Since space is limited, you are asked to fill out this online form to make reservations.

    This Tour was awesome. I had no idea we had a facility at Ga Tech in Atlanta that was sharing their high tech clean rooms with other academics and industry to help the development of nanotechnology. Our junior high and high school science students need to see the cool stuff being done in this field. It could make them see how cool science is becoming, thus considering science as a college major.

    Traffic is heavy coming into Tech from certain directions this morning. Best bet is to enter from 10th Street via State Street. We'll hold up start time to allow people time to assemble. - Marc

    I really want to go but something came up. Hopefully I'm freeing up my spot in time so that someone else can go. Enjoy!

    Thanks to all of you who filled out the online form (see above) to RSVP for this event. I just heard from the people at Tech that they will be offering us pizza at the end of the tour. (Yay!) It will be important to be able to give them an accurate count in the next day or so so that they can plan.
