Who We Are
MONT is one of 16 National Science Foundation supported user facility sites at universities across the US. These 16 sites are collectively known as the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI). With the pooled resources of the NNCI, MONT is able to aid any user in finding just the right tools and experts needed.
The labs comprising the MONT Facilityat MSU are:
The Sample Preparation Facility (prepLab)
The cryo-EM facility (cryo-EM)
These multidisciplinary facilities are housed at MSU’s Bozeman campus. They are supported,
in part, by the National Science Foundation (Grant# ECCS-2025391) .
|MONT is working with the MonArk Quantum Foundry, building bridges to 2D quantum material pipelines (2D-QMaP). MonArk is developing two prototypes of a 2D-QMaP. One 2D-QMaP will be at Montana State University and one will be at the University of Arkansas. The 2D-QMaPs will be developed to provide automated capabilities that unite and accelerate the three primary stages of sample preparation and device fabrication for 2D quantum materials research.
