Vladimir Bulović has been named the inaugural director of MIT.nano, MIT Provost Martin Schmidt has announced.
The largest capital project in the Institute’s history, MIT.nano is opening this summer as a 214,000-square-foot laboratory dedicated to the characterization and fabrication of nanoscale materials, structures, devices, and processes. Science and engineering on the scale of nanometers — about 1/100,000 the thickness of a human hair — can only be done in highly specialized, uniquely outfitted environments. As much as a quarter of current MIT research activity depends on these kinds of resources.
“MIT.nano satisfies an important need for MIT,” says…
