“This symposium is a significant event in that we are the first ones to host this kind of event that is meant to not only attract nanotechnology research scientists from around the Southeast, but also to establish and strengthen research partnerships within the Commonwealth’s Kentucky NanoNet,” said Dr. Edward Kintzel, NOVA Center director.
The symposium is open to all scientists, engineers and students from a wide range of disciplines involved in microtechnology, nanotechnology and advanced materials. The symposium also promises to expand the awareness of core facilities that exist within the region and cultivate new research collaborations.
The NOVA (Nondestructive Analysis) Center, located at WKU’s Center for Research and Development on the corner of Nashville Road and Campbell Lane, features a Large Chamber Scanning Electron Microscope (LC-SEM). The acquisition of the LC-SEM has positioned WKU as the only university in North America with an instrument of this type and as a leader in nondestructive analysis testing.
