The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) is part of Harvard University.
Our scientific focus is on how nanoscale components can be integrated into large and complex interacting systems. Studying very small structures and how their behavior differs from macroscopic objects is only part of the story.
We also must investigate how systems emerge, how they can be built, and how they behave. CNS is a member of the National Science Foundation’s National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) initiative to create a national network of world-class facilities available to all researchers.
