Established by a research development grant from SHEFC, the Thin Film Centre aims to act as a centre of excellence in Scotland for the development of deposition processes for thin films, the design and fabrication of thin film products, the characterisation of thin films and the dissemination of information about the applications of thin films.
NCRC was established at University of Tokyo for the purpose of realizing core technologies for the development of the ubiquitous information devices based on nanotechnologies, and is aiming at becoming one of the Center of Excellence (COE) in the world of advanced nano-photonics and electronics.
The Advanced Micro and Nanosystems Laboratory's research has a strong focus on bio-oriented micro and nanosystems. The actively pursued areas are micro-nano device design and fabrication (MEMS sensors and actuators, bioMEMS, and NEMS); microrobotic biomanipulation; microstructure controls; cellular mechanobiology; nanorobotic manipulation of nanomaterials.
This option transcends the traditional boundaries between physics, chemistry, and biology. Starting with a foundation in materials engineering and augmented by research from the leading-edge of nanoengineering, students receive an education that is at the forefront of this constantly evolving area.
EPMG is a research group dedicated to the training of highly-qualified personnel in understanding the science and engineering of electronic materials suitable for advancing the performance of future generations of electronic and photonic devices.
The Sargent Group at the University of Toronto applies discoveries in nanoscience towards applications relevant to our health, environment, security, and connectedness. The team unites chemistry, physics, and engineering within six experimental laboratories at the University of Toronto.
The main goal of the Master is to train professionals in the design, fabrication and characterization of nano- and micro- systems for different applications, such as sensors and actuators, photonics, BioMEMS, with high scientific and industrial impact. The Master will offer an educational portfolio that includes four thematic areas: Bio NEMS - MEMS, photonic NEMS-MEMS, NEMS-MEMS for sensors and actuators, NEMS MEMS for the alternative energy sources and environmental monitoring.
The MOSE laboratory deals with theory, simulation and modeling in three different areas: process simulation, material science (mesoscale modeling and simulation in the field of nano science and nanotechnology) and life science.
MESA+ institute for nanotechnology, trains graduate students and PhD-students and conducts research in the fields of nanotechnology, microsystems, materials science and microelectronics. Unique of MESA+ is its multidisciplinary composition. Many research groups of the faculties Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science (EEMCS) and Science and Technology (S&T) participate in the MESA+ institute.
The MSc Nanotechnology is a 2 year programme for anybody having a BSc degree in any applied science. The educational programme is offering you a multidisciplinary approach to this new emerging field, forming an excellent preparation for a scientific career both at the university or in industry.
The graduate research programmes of the Twente Graduate School are set up as a coherent and integrated master and doctorate course that runs over a period of five to at most six years leading to a PhD degree.
In order to obtain a deeper insight into the behavior of nanoscale devices the group of Prof. Zandvliet studies their physical, chemical and especially electronic properties with high spatial resolution techniques. For that purpose they mainly apply Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and Spectroscopy (SPS). Further development of SPM-based probes for electrical characterisation of nanostructures is a key part of their described research area.
(German language site) The center's objectives are technology and know-how transfer; to develop dedicated solutions and materials; to develop market-oriented innovative products by utilising the know-how of the partners
