This programme focuses on the technologies involved in the miniaturization of electronic and optical devices. The main emphasis is on current microtechnologies including the design and fabrication of microelectronic circuits, microsystems and optoelectronics. In addition to these topics, students can specialize in nanotechnology and nanosystem design or electronics production technology. The programme offers studies in basic materials and circuit theory, processing, functional devices and characterisation.
iNANO commands a variety of facilities for the synthesis of nanostructured/nanopatterned 0D (i.e. nanoparticle), 1D, 2D and 3D materials. These include: equipment for electrospinning, photo- and electron beam-lithography, nanoparticle synthesis (supercritical synthesis), solid-phase peptide synthesis, DNA modification, bioreactors for large-scale protein expression, isotope labelling, and procedures for synthesis of functionalized nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery and bioimaging, aptamers, etc.
LUNA is the acronym for 'The Lundbeck Foundation Nanomedicine Centre for Individualized Management of Tissue Damage and Regeneration'. The centre is doing research in the use of nanomedicine for new drug design, drug delivery, bioimaging and tissue regeneration to support individualized prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular and musculoskeletal diseases. The centre is headed jointly by the iNANO Centre (Aarhus University) and Aarhus University Hospital.
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.
ACTION-Grid is a Specific International Cooperation Project on healthcare information systems based on Grid capabilities and Biomedical Informatics (BMI) and nanoinformatics between Latin America, the Western Balkans and the European Union (EU).
The main purpose of the Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials Spanish Technological Platform (MATERPLAT) is fostering and promoting innovation in the Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials R&D&I Spanish System, by building a framework of encounter and collaboration between the different agents of the Company, Science and Technology Spanish System.
Nine Nanotechnology Competence Centers in Germany have established the consortium AGeNT-D (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Nanotechnologie-Kompetenzzentren in Deutschland). The CCNanos are acting nationwide and are located in various regions of Germany. All together they cover the whole range of nanotechnology's research and application areas.
The cluster will enable internationally competitive technological innovation by relevant research organization and R&D-based corporation, around the core of universities and public research organizations which serve as the base of knowledge creation.
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 Alliance for NanoHealth (ANH) was the first multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional collaborative research endeavor aimed solely at using nanotechnology to bridge the gaps between medicine, biology, materials science, computer technology and public policy. The ANH comprises seven world-class research institutions, scientists and clinicians located within the world's largest collection of healthcare facilities.
AMBIO (Advanced Nanostructured Surfaces for the Control of Biofouling) is an Integrated Project funded by the European Commission under its Sixth Framework Programme. The project is at the crossroads between nanosciences and marine biology, environment and high technology and is devoted to the knowledge-based development of antifouling coatings that function through their nanoscale physico-chemical properties, without the release of biocides which may damage the environment.
The American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) has made available the results of a comprehensive review of the core federal environmental statutes to assess the suitability of each to address issues pertinent to human health and the environment arising from applications of nanotechnology.
The American National Standards Institute's Nanotechnology Standards Panel serves as the cross-sector coordinating body for the purposes of facilitating the development of standards in the area of nanotechnology including, but not limited to, nomenclature/terminology; materials properties; and testing, measurement and characterization procedures.
ASNM's activities focus on innovative cutting-edge research in nanomedicine as well as the applications of nanotechnology to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. While promoting seminal research activities in nanomedicine worldwide, issues such as ethics, safety and toxicity, intellectual property, and commercialization will also be addressed and explored.
