Stanford NNIN Computing Facility (SNCF) is part of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) , funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The mission of SNCF is to provide computing capability to researchers in academia and industry to model nanoscale processes.
As part of the NNIN, SNL's mission is to assist researchers in acquiring high quality, useful data and insight using modern facilities for the characterization of materials.
The NNIN SEI program is committed to the research and understanding of the broader implications of nanotechnology. At SNF, these encompass not only the impact of new technologies on society at large, but also the ethical responsibilities of researchers who make these developments possible.
SNF and its researchers are supported by these affiliate programs.
