The Engineer Research ad Development Center (ERDC) nanomaterials research cluster includes an interdisciplinary team of experts in the fields of materiel science, geology, soil science, toxicology, and computational chemistry. The team has four major research programs addressing questions regarding the source, analysis, fate and transport, and toxicology of engineered nanomaterials.
The center on Functional Engineered Nano Architectonics (FENA) aims to create and investigate new nano-engineered functional materials and devices, and novel structural and computational architectures for new information processing systems beyond the limits of conventional CMOS technology.
The Center for Cell Control is working on an unprecedented approach to first utilize systems control, with therapeutic intent, to determine the parameters for guiding the cell to a directed phenotype/genotype which will then be followed by in depth study, using nanoscale modalities, of the path by which this desired state is achieved. This approach will enable engineering systems that can be applied towards the regulation of a spectrum of cellular functions, such as cancer eradication, controlling viral infection onset, and stem cell differentiation.
The Photonics Laboratory at UCLA performs multi-disciplinary research and development in the fields of silicon photonics, microwave photonics, and biophotonics for biomedical and defense applications. The Lab has two complementary missions. The first is to solve critical problems faced by defense, commercial industries, and medicine through innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in devices or systems. The second and equally important mission is to produce creative and highly skilled scientists and engineers who will be the driving force for technological innovation in the 21st century.
Research in the group focuses around two intertwined goals. These are first, to create complex materials with nanoscale periodicity using self-organization, and second, to produce new physical properties because of that nanoscale architecture.
Vaults are components of cells that were first described in 1986. Because the particle is abundant in all cells of higher organisms and highly conserved throughout evolution, it is likely that the function of the vault is important to life. This website is designed for the educated non-scientist. It summarizes the present state of knowlege of this fascinating particle.
The Western Institute of Nanoelectronics (WIN), a National Institute of Excellence, has been organized to build on the best interdisciplinary talents in the field of nanoelectronics in the world. WIN's mission is to explore and develop advanced research devices, circuits and nanosystems with performance beyond conventional scaled CMOS.
The UK MNT Network has been established by the DTI and the 12 Regional Development Agencies and Devolved Administrations working together, to provide a market-oriented focus for the facilities, people and organisations engaged in Micro and Nanotechnologies in the UK. As of April 2007 the MNT network has been rebranded the 'Nanotechnology KTN' network.
The school's primary mission to establish world-leading research groups in the interdisciplinary areas of Nano-Bioscience and Chemical Engineering. The goal of the discipline is to advance the fundamental understanding of biological and chemical systems, to broaden the basic knowledge on the molecular interactions in nano-scale, and to translate into innovative designs and engineering of novel materials, devices, and processes in order to provide paradigm-shifting solution to the complex issues such as human health, energy, and environment.
The main purpose of our research center is to enhance the Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) and Ion Beam Modification of Materials (IBMM) techniques for their use in a broad range of fields, from Materials Science to Archaeometry or Environmental Science, areas of scientific research on which IBA techniques have already proven their power.
The research developed in Martin's group is mainly focussed to Carbon Nanostructures (Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes) as materials for the preparation of Photo- and Electroactive Organic Molecular Systems.
The group's research focuses on quantum properties of ultra-small semiconductor and organic structures with the aim to investigate theoretically new, unusual and unexpected phenomena. In particular they are interested in structures that operate in the quantum regime where several exciting and still unresolved puzzles await their discovery.
Research activities in the field of Surface engineering for high temperature: Study of corrosion behaviour of protective coatings at high temperature. Within this field the national and international projects that focus in developing new protective coating for the power generation and aerospace industry as well as the study of corrosion behaviour in very aggressive environments.
The Interuniversitary Master in Nanosciencie and Molecular Nanotechnology does not have precedents nationally since he discusses the aspects placed in the intersection of one science at his peak as he is Nanosciencie with the more traditional molecular systems . It influences, therefore, scientific areas of present-day interest like Molecular Electronics , Molecular Magnetism , the Supramolecular Chemistry , Physics at Superficies, or the Molecular Materials Science.
The Microsystems and Nanotechnology group deals with Opto- and Electro-mechanical systems, MEMS and MOEMS. Optical detection modulation with piezoelectric devices; Physical, chemical and biological sensors (optical, piezoelectric, electrochemical). Polymer deposition; Nanoparticles, nanostructures and nanodevices; Atomic Force Microscope and Electron Beam Lithography.
University of Madeira andCentro de Quimica da Madeira, Madeira Island, Portugal, invite applicants with a Bachelor or a Master degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Life Sciences, Materials, Physics or related sciences/engineering courses to apply to our new two years Master Programme in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials.
