The Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures seeks to create cross-disciplinary infrastructure that transcends departmental, institutional, industrial and governmental barriers and lends itself to the integration of research and education in the vital field of smart and advanced materials. Research includes nanophysics, nanochemistry, nanocomposites
The degree program will hold classes on campus, but will also be the first master's degree program in nanoengineering that is offered via online distance education - making the program available to students who are already in the workforce. The program will also offer concentrations in biomedical science in nanoengineering, materials science in nanoengineering, and nanoelectronics and nanophotonics.
The Nanoscience Technology program is a collaborative effort between North Dakota State College of Science and Minnesota State Community and Technical College-Moorhead. Students may enroll and earn a degree through either college.
Located at North Dakota State University, Fargo, in the NDSU Research & Technology Park, CNSE has grown from five to approximately 65 scientists, engineers and support staff since its founding in 2002. More than 80 NDSU students and faculty work with these professionals on research with federal and state agencies, companies, universities and government laboratories. We currently expend about $18 million annually on our research and development programs.
The Materials and Nanotechnology Program at North Dakota State University is an interdisciplinary Graduate Program spanning several Colleges and Centers, but sustained primarily by the College of Science and Mathematics, the College of Engineering and Architecture, and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering. Both PhD and Masterís degrees are offered.
Cross disciplinary in nature, the AAS-T degree combines elements of materials science, chemistry, biology and physics, electronics and engineering. Students will be exposed to clean room procedures including an understanding and maintenance of nano/micro fabrication and characterization equipment.
The George J. Kostas Nanoscale Technology and Manufacturing Research Center is the primary facility for micro and nanofabrication at Northeastern University. The Kostas facility also serves as the main facility for the new NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) at Northeastern University, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and the University of New Hampshire.
IGERT Nanomedicine Science and Technology program at Northeastern University is a new integrated doctoral education program in the emerging field of Nanomedicine, created with support from the National Cancer Institute and the National Science Foundation.
The Northern California Nanotechnology Initiative, NCnano, is an economic development initiative focused on developing the nanotechnology and the nano-bio-IT convergence technology economy of Northern California.
NUANCE Center integrates three existing complementary instrumentation facilities at NU: EPIC, NIFTI, and Keck-II under a unified management umbrella, and consolidated into contiguous space. These three facilities are a unique, centralized, resource for the NU community and beyond.
The area of concentration in nanoscale physics prepares students to investigate structures and systems at the interface of classical and quantum physics at nanometer length scales. It provides a hands-on, inter-disciplinary introduction to the cutting-edge science and technologies associated with exploring nanoscale phenomena. This area of concentration is especially well-suited for physics majors with inter-disciplinary career interests in biology, chemistry, and/or engineering.
The Bio-inspired Sensors and Optoelectronics Lab (BISOL) has a general goal of producing novel photonics and optoelectronic devices inspired by nature. Current research is focused on infrared detectors and vision systems, nano-scale lasers, visible to terahertz plasmonics, and novel nano-processing.
The Center for Nanofabrication and Molecular Self-Assembly (NAMSA), one of the first federally and privately funded nanotechnology facilities of its kind in the nation, is home to scientists and engineers dedicated to the pursuit of new technologies.
The Grzybowski Research Group at Northwestern University aims at (i) understanding self-assembly (SA) and self-organization (SO) in both equilibrium and nonequilibrium ensembles at various length-scales and (ii) applying SA/SO in practical applications ranging from micro and nanotechnology through biology to societal/global issues.
The Institute for Nanotechnology was established as an umbrella organization for the multimillion dollar nanotechnology research efforts at Northwestern University. The role of the Institute is to support meaningful efforts in nanotechnology, house state-of-the-art nanomaterials characterization facilities, and nucleate individual and group efforts aimed at addressing and solving key problems in nanotechnology.
The MEMS and Nanomechanics group is focused on characterizing mechanical behavior and properties of materials at small scale, biomaterials and artificial bio-inspired materials, materials at high strain rates, and on developing the expertise and tools to address micro and nanoscale fabrication and testing.
