The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) is a part of Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and focuses on how nanoscale components can be integrated into large and complex interacting systems. CNS is also a member of the National Science Foundation's National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) initiative to create a national network of world-class facilities available to all researchers.

Dr. Eric Martin, Technical Director of the CNS at Harvard said, "Our Center is enthusiastic about working together with STS to meet the very demanding needs of leading-edge Nanoscience being conducted at our facility. CNS operates on a shared-resource basis and serves hundreds of users per year.

In STS we have found a partner who understands the importance of responding quickly to changing process requirements and emerging areas of materials processing."

Andrew Tucker, General Manager and VP of Sales, of ST Systems (USA), Inc. added, "We are very proud to receive this order from such an internationally renowned university. These are the first tools we have sold to Harvard, and are pleased to add another key university research facility with multiple tools to our customer base.
