Our primary mission is to develop nano-fabrication, advanced lithography and precision engineering technology for building high performance space instrumentation, including x-ray telescopes and high resolution x-ray spectrometers, magnetospheric imagers and solar physics instrumentation.

Our lab is also a leader in the field of nanometer and sub-nanometer dimensional metrology applied to planar lithography patterning and ultrahigh accuracy optics.

Education and training of students is an important part of our mission. Research in the SNL is performed primarily by graduate and undergraduate students from the Departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aero/Astro Engineering, and Physics with support from a small professional staff.
