The Nanoscale Science & Devices Group is part of the Bioscience Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Understanding the physics and chemistry at the nanoscale is important in designing and developing miniature sensors and devices that exploit nanoscale effects.
The mission of this EU-funded project is to create a European Observatory on Nanotechnologies to present reliable, complete and responsible science-based and economic expert analysis, across technology sectors, establish dialogue with decision makers and others regarding the benefits and opportunities, balanced against barriers and risks, and allow them to take action to ensure that scientific and technological developments are realized as socio-economic benefits.
ONAP at the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology is a pilot project designed to assist qualified Oklahoma companies with the process of applying nanotechnology through research, development, and manufacturing to improve current products or processes or create new, cutting-edge products or processes.
The Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) is a scientific research organization with activities concentrated in seven research fields: accidents, chemical substances and biological agents, musculoskeletal disorders, noise and vibration, protective equipment, occupational rehabilitation, safety of industrial tools, machines and processes. Plans for an integrated nanotechnology research program are underway.
In March 2007, the OECD's Committee on Scientific and Technological Policy (CSTP) established a Working Party on Nanotechnology. The objective of this Working Party is to promote international co-operation that facilitates research, development, and responsible commercialisation of nanotechnology in member countries and in non-member economies.
EMNLAB is a group within the physical electronics branch of Electrical Engineering at The Ohio State University. The group focuses on using a wide array of analysis, processing, and growth techniques to investigate the surface, interface, and ultrathin film properties of semiconductors.
A fundamental question to be addressed in the group's research is how we can learn from biological systems in nature, especially at the micro/nano-scale, in order to engineer biocompatible nanomaterials and further develop innovative robotic systems that are capable of interfacing with molecular and cellular systems for advanced therapeutics and tissue engineering applications, and for swimming efficiently in fluidic environment.
The group's research is focused on the computational analysis of the flow, heat and mass transfer in micro and nano fluidic systerms. Current research projects include modeling of an implantable artifical kidney, DNA translocation in nanopores and fundamental issues associated with bio-sensing.
A major nanoprobe laboratory with a focus on bio/nanotechnology and biomimetics was organized in July 1991 with the initial financial support from the state of Ohio and The Ohio State University. More than 5700 square feet of laboratory space was made available for this purpose. The laboratory is populated with the modern scientific equipment needed to conduct state-of-the-art research.
ENCOMM NanoSystems Laboratory is operated by the OSU Center for Electronic and Magnetic Nanoscale Composite Multifunctional Materials. Its goal is to provide academic and industrial users with access to advanced material characterization and fabrication tools for research and development applications.
Der Studiengang vermittelt Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten in der Herstellung, Prüfung, Verarbeitung und Verwendung von Werkstoffen, z.B. von Metallen, Kunststoffen, Nichtmetallisch-Anorganischen Werkstoffen und Werkstoffen der Verbund- und Nanotechnologie.
This research unit studies the structural, magnetic, electronic, chemical properties and applications of size selected monometallic, bimetallic and core–shell nanoclusters/nanoparticles prepared by magnetron sputter gas aggregation source.
The central theme of the group's research program is the development and application of cutting-edge bio- and nano- technologies and ultrasensitive analytical methodologies to address fundamental and practical questions in chemical, biochemical and biomedical research.
The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute is Oregon's first 'Signature Research Center' for the purpose of growing research and commercialization to accelerate innovation-based economic development in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
The ONE-P ('Organic nano-materials for electronics and photonics: design, synthesis, characterisation, processing, fabrication and applications') project has been allocated EUR 18 million under the 'Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies' (NMP) Theme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project counts 28 partners from 10 EU Member States. The ONE-P project will work in the fast-growing world of organic, carbon-based semiconductors.
Ultra high spatial-resolution and sensitivity for sensing biomolecules and DNA can be achieved by the use of nanotechnology such as scanning probe techniques and non-linear photonics using ultra short pulsed lasers. The Group is evolving these techniques to create new biological applications, particularly, real-time measurement of the chemical reactions occurring in living cells and tissue.
