The DSN-I Seminar Series is hosted by the Device Science and Nanofabrication Initiative (DSN-I) and will take place on Wednesdays at 12pm throughout the semester, with the intent of bringing together researchers whose activities are centered around micro and nanofabrication technologies or devices. We would like to build a sense of community who will work together in the new clean room facility and other shared infrastructures. There will be a different speaker every seminar, and lunch will be provided.

Please email Chloƫ Mattingly ( to join our mailing list and for more information regarding the next seminar. All are welcome to attend and we hope to see you there!
