Introduction

_Centre for Nano Metrology and Manufacturing Technologies (CNM) was founded on 17 October 2009, aiming to establish a world-class centre for creative or innovative research and the training of research students in the areas of nano measurement, handling and manufacturing. CNM is part of CUST - Changchun University of Science and Technology (the former Changchun Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics), founded in 1958 by Professor Daheng Wang who was a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and the main proposer of the China’s “863” High-tech Programme. The university currently has about 2,000 staff members and 21,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from 14 countries. It is the only university with its main expertise in optics and optoelectronics in China.

CNM has more than 90 staff members and research students. Its research activities focus on nanometrology, __ robotic nanohandling, nanoassembly, and laser nanoscale manufacturing (nanolithography). Since 2009, it has been working on 19 research projects (~16M CNY), funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST), European Commission (FP7 programme), Chinese Academy of Sciences/Guangdong Science and Technology Department, Government of Jilin Province, Jilin Provincial Science and Technology Department, Bureau of Science and Technology of Changchun City, and Changchun University of Science and Technology.

In 2011, CNM was officially named as Jilin Provincial International Science and Technology Cooperation _ Base for Nano Handling, Assembly and Manufacturing by the Science and Technology Department of Jilin Province, and Changchun Science and Technology Innovation Centre for Nanomanufacturing by the Science and Technology Bureau of Changchun City. It is also part of the International Joint Research Centre for Nanophotonics and Biophotonics (IJRCNB) with the Institute for Lasers, Photonics, and Biophotonics (ILPB), USA, and part of the Joint Research Centre for Computer-Controlled Nanomanufacturing (JR3CN) with the University of Bedfordshire, UK.

In 2013, CNM was recognised as "International Research Centre for Nano Handling and Manufacturing of China (CNM)" by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

CNM is active in constructing new and enhancing existing networks of beneficial international research collaborations. It is a partner of four EU FP7 projects (LaserNaMi, ECNANOMAN, ECROBOT and BioRA). On 29 August - 1 September 2011, CNM/CUST organized the first International Conference on Manipulation, Manu­facturing and Measurement on the Nanoscale (3M-NANO) with the University of Oldenburg in Changchun, China http://www.3m-nano.org sponsored by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Research Executive Agency (REA) of European Commission and Jilin Provincial Science and Technology Department. A major goal of the 3M-NANO conference is to support the deve­lopment of the nanohandling research community and to encourage long-term partnerships and collaborative research activities.

With its efforts to establish a world-class centre for creative or innovative research and the training of research students, CNM welcomes research scientists and students worldwide to join its research activities in the areas of nano measurement, handling and manufacturing.
