The VNLab is a team of dedicated computational and theoretical physicists, chemists and materials scientists who investigate a range of fundamental properties of nanostructures under different thermochemical conditions.
The research undertaken by the group ranges from government-funded fundamental research to confidential one-on-one industrial projects. The NRI is also part of the West Australian Nanochemistry Institute (WANRI) that comprises groups from Curtin University, Murdoch University and the University of Western Australia.
The Czech Nanotechnology Cluster aims to build a strong group of closely cooperating nanoproduct suppliers, businesses using nanotechnologies in their products and research and educational institutes operating in this sphere.
The goal of the organization is to better represent, both nationally and internationally, the strengths and capabilities of Czech companies in business, research, and education. CeskoJe Nano seeks to build on the already auspicious foundation that Czech nanotechnology achievements hold today as one of the leading international locations for innovation and strives to create a stronger awareness of these abilities while at the same time forging new links and opening new opportunities for cooperation between commercial and research sectors.
The group is devoted to fundamental research on the catalysis on nanocatalysts and interface chemistry, with the emphasis on the development and employment of appropriate methods and technologies in order to understand the nature of catalysis.
The group studies the link between structure and mechanical properties in biological systems. They are particularly interested in self-assembled protein filaments like collagen fibrils, intermediate filaments and myosin thick filaments.

The NanoOffice is part of the Center for Interdisciplinary Technology Studies (ZIT) at Darmstadt Technical University. It serves as a platform for interdisciplinary discussions, the development of joint initiatives and the pursuit of various research and outreach projects.
The materials investigated include metals, amorphous and crystalline alloys, semiconductors, oxide, nitride and carbide ceramics in the form of clusters, thin films, multilayers and bulk nanocrystalline materials. All synthesis techniques are based on vapor phase processes such as Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and DC- and RF- Magnetron Sputtering for thin films and multilayers and Chemical Vapor Synthesis (CVS) and Inert Gas Condensation (IGC) for clusters and nanocrystalline materials.
Dartmouth has been designated as a Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE). The CCNE places Dartmouth among top centers in cancer nanotechnology research nationwide. CCNEs are tasked with integrating nanotechnology into basic and applied cancer research in order to provide new solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in conjunction with Dartmouth College and Thayer School of Engineering, has a community of scientists, clinicians, and engineers, focused on the enormous potential of nanotechnology for improving cancer diagnostics and therapy. The group pulls together these diverse communities for educational and research purposes.
The DEEPEN project is Europe?s leading research partnership for integrated understanding of the ethical challenges posed by emerging nanotechnologies in real world circumstances, and their implications for civil society, for governance, and for scientific practice.
DARPA is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense. It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions. DARPA manages a number of nanotechnology projects.
Since its inception in 1987, the Institute has been a bright source of creativity and innovation at the edge of microelectronic science. DIMES integrates nanoscale and high-speed device physics, material science and process technology, circuit design, and embedded system design methodology in one institute.
The department focuses on the functioning of single cells in all their complexity down to the molecular level. Understanding the mechanisms operating inside a cell is very useful for practical applications in, for example, improved health care, molecularly targeted medicine, and development of new energy sources. The department of Bionanoscience is part of the university's successful Kavli Institute of Nanoscience.
As of September 2010 the MSc in Nanoscience will no longer be offered in cooperation with Leiden University. At TU Delft Nanoscience will be offered as a track within the Applied Physics MSc programme.
The project Development of Lithography Technology for Nanoscale Structuring of Materials Using Laser Beam Interference (DELILA) focuses on researching and developing a new production technology for fabrication of 2D and 3D nano structures and devices. In particular, DELILA will enable low cost and large volume production of surface structures and patterns with nanometric resolution.
The "Design for Micro & Nano Manufacture (Patent-DfMM)" Network of Excellence aims to establish a new technical community that will address the underlying engineering science to ensure that problems affecting the manufacture and reliability of products based on MNT can be addressed before prototype and pre-production.
The Focused Research Program 'Nanowires and Nanotubes: From Controlled Synthesis to Function' supports the Theory of Development of Templates - Fabrication of Nanowires and Nanotubes - Charaterization.
DINAMICS is a European FP6-funded project that aims to promote the uptake of nanotechnological approaches by developing an integrated costeffective nanobiological sensor for detection of bioterrorism and environmental assays. The prime deliverable is an exploitable lab-on-a-chip device for detection of pathogens in water using on-the-spot recognition and detection based on the nanotechnological assembly of unlabelled DNA.
The DIAMANT team has pioneered the discovery and development of diamond as a uniquely promising material system for solid-state molecular technologies: Diamond has exceptional optical and magnetic properties that are associated with dopant complexes - or 'solid-state molecules' - in the diamond lattice. The DIAMANT project will develop new technologies to enable placement of exactly one atom at a time into a selected location in the diamond lattice with nanometre precision.
