About KyNN

  • KyNN - The Kentucky NanoNET

    The Kentucky nanoNET (KY nanoNET or simply KYNN) is a Kentucky NSF EPSCoR initiative for developing an "electronic parkway" within the Commonwealth for tying together all the various facilities, resources and people involved in micro/nanotechnology, advanced materials, and MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems). NSF projects the field of nanotechnology to explode from a $400B industry today to a $2.5T industry by 2020.  To accommodate that tremendous level of growth, it is predicted that 2,000,000 nanotechnologists will need to be trained by 2020, a hundred fold increase in the number today (20,000). The NSF-supported KYNN initiative will help position the state of Kentucky to be an active participant in that economic opportunity. 

  • KRUNCH - Shared Software Initiative

    KRUNCH (Kentucky Research Users of Nano CAD Hub) is KYNN's shared software program which offers commercial micro/nano/MEMS CAD tools to its academic KY members at no cost. Presently four commercial software packages are offered (Tanner Tools, Coventorware, Intelisense, Silvaco).

  • KORE

    KORE (Kentucky Optical REsources) is KYNN's program for supplying high-quality photomasks and advanced lithographic processes such as e-beam lithography and greyscale lithography. KORE is available to both KYNN members and outside users.
