After visiting the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory two years ago, the chapter was invited for a tour of the Stanford Nano Shared Facilities this September. The visit started with a talk by the associate director Tobias Beetz, who then guided a tour through the facilities. After learning about x-ray- and Raman microscopy and the state of the art nano SIMS tool, the tour concluded with a live demo of the Titan transmission electron microscope that can image with atomic resolution. Afterwards, most of the participants continued their discussions at the Dutch Goose, a legendary local pub.
