Plasmo-nano-devices is an Information Society Technologies Network of Excellence initiated by the European Union in its sixth Framework Programme. Sixteen Laboratories throughout Europe take part in this Network. The focus of the work is the utilization of surface plasmons to develop new optical interconnects and optical components. Beyond scientific work the Network also experiments with new schemes to allocate funding dynamically
The CSS was established in 1997 to develop new supramolecular assemblies with desired structures, properties and functions by utilizing the principles of molecular recognition and self assembly. Emphasis is placed on the supramolecular systems that can provide the operating principles of molecular switch, molecular memory, and sensor.
Il laureato in Ingegneria Ingegneria dei Materiali e delle Nanotecnologie consegue il titolo di studio di laureato di primo livello (ingegnere junior) nella classe dell'Ingegneria Industriale. Egli può esercitare la libera professione, previo esame di Stato e iscrizione alla Sezione B dell'Albo dell'Ordine degli Ingegneri della Provincia di residenza.
This Master of Science programme is taught entirely in English to stimulate the student in acquiring greater familiarity with the terminology used internationally. The objective of the programme is to prepare a professional figure expert in materials and in the design of processes and manufactured goods. Within the scope of the study plan a number of specific specialisations are foreseen: Surface Treatements Engineering; Polymer and Composite Engineering; Nanotechnologies; Materials Design.
The aim of this course is to develop a professional as requested by industries with advanced technologies. A graduate in micro and nanotechnologies can develop methods and products to increase know-how and competitiveness of European industries with advanced technologies, especially in the information technologies field.
INRC specializes in providing applied and theoretical research and development in the scientific and technological fields of material, chemical and environmental engineering, with a focus on the development, marketing, commercialization and manufacturing of advanced nanocomposites.
The mission of NanoStructures Laboratory (NSL) is to explore and develop 1) New nanotechnologies that will fabricate structures substantially smaller, better, and cheaper than current technology permits. and 2) Innovative nanoscale electronic, optoelectronic, and magnetic devices by combining cutting-edge nanotechnology with frontier knowledge from different disciplines.
Established in April 2005 as a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts. The Project is dedicated to helping ensure that as nanotechnologies advance, possible risks are minimized, public and consumer engagement remains strong, and the potential benefits of these new technologies are realized.
It is the aim of the FP6 program PRONANO that the new massively parallel scanning probe nanotools with VLSI ASNEMS (application specific nanoelectromechanical systems) chips inside should empower nanotechnologists and drive the rapid development of nanoscience, leading to new nanotechnology processes and their industrial exploitation. They will secure the future of nanotechnology with economic throughputs leading to new manufacturing industries.
ProTeM (Probe-based Terabit Memory) is an EU FP6 Integrated Project funded by the IST Micro-and Nanosystems programme. Aim of the project is to develop Probe Storage micro-nano techniques and systems for ultra-high capacity, low power, small form-factor memories, with a particular focus on archival and backup applications.
