New York Center for National Competitiveness in Nanoscale Characterization (NC3)
The New York Center for National Competitiveness in Nanoscale Characterization (NC3), headquartered at SUNY Poly CNSE, is a world-class center created to formulate and deploy nanotechnology metrology innovations that will enable commercialization within small, medium, and large U.S. companies and further strengthen technological and business competitiveness in the United States.

Launched with federal funding obtained by U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, the mission of NC3 is to leverage pertinent intellectual assets and physical resources to enable "seeing" and measuring at the nanoscale - one of the leading challenges facing the nanotechnology industry - in order to enable development of smaller and faster computer chips that offer higher performance and reduced power consumption for use in a wide range of industries, from health care, energy and telecommunications to military, aerospace and transportation.
