Organisation profile

Center for Micro/Nano Science and Technology (CMNST) established in 1997 is one of the three university-level research centers of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU). Subsidized by Taiwan National Science and Technology Program for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Research University Integration Project from the Ministry of Education, the center has accumulated abundant talents-cultivation experiences and top research achievements and thus become a key institute for nano technology and research in Taiwan. According to the result of National Science Council performance evaluation of micro/nano centers in Taiwan, CMNST is a center with the largest scale, the greatest influence, and the best service and research KPIs. Every year CMNST provides service for 15 thousand person-time of facility operation and over 50 companies and issues more than 100 certified test reports. In addition, it has developed four in-house research teams: 1. Nanolithography, 2. Epitaxy & Nanosurface, 3. Nanomaterial Analysis, and 4. Nondestructive Analysis. CMNST establishes the first Center for Graphene/2D Materials and Devices in Taiwan to develop the technology of large-area graphene/2D materials fabrication by synthesizing graphene quantum dots with great optical properties. Furthermore, with its technology of nano device fabrication, CMNST promotes the technology and applications of graphene/2D materials to boost the progress of industrial development in Taiwan. Goals and Mission of CMNST • Manage and operate public laboratories • Develop researches with novelty and industrial value • Support and develop cutting-edge academic researches • Establish and enhance the functions of nanoMark Laboratory • Stimulate the progress of regional education and research institutes
