Our Mission

The Center for Quantum Nano Science (QNS) studies materials on the atomic scale. We employ specialized tools that allow us to see atoms, touch atoms and move them into desired positions. This allows us to build engineered structures consisting of several atoms, which often have surprising and sometimes useful properties. QNS will focus on a basic exploration of our world on the atomic scale with an eye towards harnessing these quantum properties for data storage and computation.
