The James and Anna Marie Spilker Engineering and Applied Sciences Building

Project Description

The James and Anna Marie Spilker Engineering and Applied Sciences Building will feature the most advanced equipment available to explore matter at the Nanoscale, such as an e-beam lithography tool and an atomic force microscope, much of it located underground to provide the stringent control of vibration, light, and cleanliness that is essential for Nanoscale research. The center will make these labs available to approximately 70 researchers from all over campus, including leaders in the natural and physical sciences, engineering, and medicine, who are exploring Nanoscale properties and devices with potential applications as diverse as water purification, energy conservation, transportation, and national security. The Spilker Center will be the new home of the Ginzton Laboratory and the proposed Institute for Nanoscience and Technology. It will complement the nearby Stanford Nanocharacterization Lab and Stanford Nanofabrication Facility.
