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.
The protonic NanoMachine Project focuses on the roles of protons as energy and signal carriers in the complex network formed by a vast number of macromolecular nanomachines that support various activities of life.
PULLNANO is a 30-month Integrated Project from the 6th Framework Programme proposal for a powerful project focused on advanced Research and Technological Development activities to push forward the limits of CMOS technologies. PULLNANO focuses on the development of 32 and 22nm CMOS technology nodes opening the way to the long term future of these technologies.
The Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery and Exploration (INDEX) - one of just four such nanoelectronics research institutes in the country ? is located at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex. The INDEX institute focuses on cutting-edge research in the field of nanotechnology, including the development of nanomaterials, fabrication technologies, nanochip designs and architectural integration schemes for realizing the computer nanochip designs of the future.
The Nanoelectronic Modeling Group works in the area of nanoelectronics where we try to better the understanding of electron flow through nano-scale devices. The effort on modeling and simulation is heavily computer based. They try to connect to experimental results which they try to explain or even predict experiments.
The Purdue University - US Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory joint research program in nanoscale science and engineering of wood-based materials has three main drivers in forestry based nanotechnology, fundamental knowledge development, applied product development, and new technological innovations.
nanoHUB is a web-based initiative spearheaded by the NSF- Network for Computational Nanotechnology. Its mission is to serve as a resource for research and education in the areas of nano-electronics, NEMS, and their application to nano-biosystems and to be the place where experiment, theory and simulation meet and move nanoscience to nanotechnology. The Nanohub provides online simulation services as well as courses, tutorials, seminars, debates, and facilities for collaboration.
The lab is building and expanding the understanding of the fundamentals of atomic-level carrier transport and interactions, and is applying this knowledge to important energy, information, and biomedical technologies.
Nanoscale Science and Engineering embodies fundamental research and technology development of materials, structures, devices, processes, and systems where at least one physical dimension is on the length scale of approximately 1-100 nanometers. This is a current area of strength and a future area of growth at Purdue. In the department of Chemical Engineering there are 11 faculty involved with federally funded research programs in the area.
Created by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology, a consortium of eight member universities dedicated to furthering research and education in nanotechnology, nanoHUB.org offers free simulation, education, collaboration, and publication to the nanotechnology community.
