Provides new scientific knowledge in support of Sandia's national security mission, especially in the areas of nuclear weapons, energy and infrastructure assurance, nonproliferation and assessments, military technology and applications, and homeland security.
A technology of 'smart' materials and nanotechnology, which involves the study, control and manipulation of materials at the nanoscale. Nanotechnology research is focussing mainly on four major sectors nanoelectronics, nanobiotechnology, nanomaterials, and nanomanufacturing.
An applications- and science-driven research centre of Simon Fraser University, focussing on accelerating the Design, Development, Demonstration and Delivery of advanced materials and nanoscale devices.
The Centre has been created from selected Departments of six Institutes of Slovak Academy of Sciences with the aim to reach the critical mass for systematic research and development of nanostructured and ultrafine grained materials with extraordinary properties.
The mission of the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences (SIMS) is to provide leadership in collaboration with the Canadian and international scientific communities in the development of a knowledge base in molecular sciences and to ensure that it has positive impact on Canada by being pro-active in its dissemination to our partners.
A joint research institute by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), the government of Jiangsu Province and the government of Suzhou city with a focus on nano-devices and related materials, nanobiotech and nanomedicine, nanobionics and safety of nanomaterials.
FOI conducts research and development directed towards the optimisation of performance, effectiveness, reliability and safety. Research in materials is focused largely on general areas such as nanotechnology.
