Acreo, a contract R&D lab, deals with several aspects of optical components and systems for various applications. The company develops and manufactures new components or materials with new properties based on semiconductor structures in the nanometer scale. Examples are new types of light sources, detectors or modulators.
The AFRL ML develops materials, processes, and advanced manufacturing technologies for aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, rockets, and ground-based systems and their structural, electronic and optical components.
The Nano-Carbon Materials team at the Center develops original synthetic approaches to fabricate rational nanoscale materials as basic building blocks and the hierarchical assembly of these nanomaterials to fundamental elements for nanodevices that would serve as functional components for applications in nanotechnology.
The group's focus is to develop original synthetic approaches to fabricate rational nanoscale materials as basic building blocks and hierarchically assemble these nanomaterials to fundamental elements for nanodevices that would then serve as functional components for applications in nanotechnology.
As part of the Government of the Province of Alberta's Nano Strategy, ACAMP is dedicated to building a world class capability that will grow to make Alberta a world-leading locale for the assembly and packaging of Micro-Nano-Technologies (MNT) enabled devices and development of new commercial products and industrial applications.
The Australian Centre for NanoMedicine combines Medicine, Science and Engineering to deliver therapeutic solutions to research problems in medicine. Through a commitment to research, education, knowledge transfer and commercialisation, ACN is dedicated to the prevention, diagnostics and curing of diseases.
Established under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy, the ANFF links 8 university-based nodes to provide researchers and industry with access to state-of-the-art fabrication facilities. The capability provided by ANFF enables users to process hard materials (metals, composites and ceramics) and soft materials (polymers and polymer-biological moieties) and transform these into structures that have application in sensors, medical devices, nanophotonics and nanoelectronics.
The Australian Research Council (ARC) Center of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics crosses the boundaries of biology, lasers and nanoscience, using light-based sensors to probe molecular processes within living systems.
The mission of the Institute is to play a dominant role in the materials science and technology innovation chain, first of all in the field of laser technology, metal technology and simulation, polymer technology and nanotechnology.
