(Site in German) The BMBF supported research project on metal gate electrodes and epitaxial oxides as gate stacks for future CMOS logic and memory generations (MEGA EPOS) refers to the BMBF research program IKT2020 - Elektronik und Mikrosysteme. The consortium is coordinated by Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mikro- und Optoelektronik (AMO) and consists of seven partners acting from basic research to application.
The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication is the Victorian Node and headquarters of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF). Opened in July 2010, this multi-user research facility is operating the largest purpose-built cleanroom complex in the Southern Hemisphere. Drawing upon the wealth of knowledge within six Universities and CSIRO, they are uniquely placed in a thriving cosmopolitan world-centre enabling us to bridge the gaps between scientific disciplines and commercial needs.
The main scientific objective of the partners of this consortium is to develop new types of artificial materials, referred to below as metamaterials, with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found among natural materials. The results of this development should lead to a conceptually new range of radio, microwave, and optical technologies, based on revolutionary new materials made by large-scale assembly of some basic elements (nanoscopic and microscopic) in unprecedented combinations.
'Bringing intelligence into micro-nano-systems' - The focus of this research group is integration of adaptive and machine learning techniques with micro-systems to achieve ultra-low power and robust operation.
The MOE lab focuses on inorganic and organic excitonic materials for solar energy production and utilization. They look to exploit oriented, crystalline, nanostructured and excitonic films through organic-inorganic and organic-organic interactions while studying fundamental relationships between structure and photophysical properties.
The Graduate Certificate in Nanotechnology recognizes advanced study of scientific, technological, and engineering topics in nanotechnology, including aspects of 1) characterization; 2) micro- to nano-scale fabrication and control; and 3) devices, systems and integration. The certificate also requires study of the societal and ethical implications of emerging technologies.
The minor in Nanoscale Science and Engineering (Nanotechnology) is deliberately designed to introduce students to the basic issues and overall scope of this field, encourage students to pursue interdisciplinary coursework outside their major, develop an understanding of the importance of flexibility in terms of careers, research, and education, and be flexible to allow for participation by students in diverse majors.
Micronova is a center for the design, development and fabrication of micro- and nanosystems. Micronova is run jointly by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Helsinki University of Technology (TKK).
Nanomicrowave is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) aiming to train a new generation of multidisciplinary researchers in the field of nanoscale microwave technologies and related emerging applications. The consortium consists of three industrial partners and seven academic and research institutions.
The graduate program in Micro and Nanotechnology is a joint interdisciplinary program of the following Departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Engineering Sciences, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Mining Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
The PhD program in Micro and Nanotechnology is a joint interdisciplinary program of the following Departments: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Engineering Sciences, Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Mining Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
A research consortium whose goal is to develop the next class of semiconductor materials and devices. The consortium includes Purdue University, the University of Illinois, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Michigan, Argonne National Laboratory, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
The aim of the network MINAEAST-NET is to prepare the participation of organisations from associated candidate countries (ACCs) for projects in FP6 in the area of Micro and Nano Technologies (MNT). The main objective is networking on micro and nanotechnologies, according to priority thematic areas 2 (IST) and 3 (NMP) from FP 6.
A 'competitiveness cluster' that brings together major corporations, small and mid-sized businesses, government agencies, and organizations from the public and private sectors to develop a unique hybrid of micro- and nanotechnologies and embedded software.
MINOS-EURONET is devoted to stimulating, encouraging and facilitating the participation of New Member States (NMS) and the Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) in the activities of IST. The proposal has a pan-European focus on one strategic objective in IST, namely micro- and nanosystems.
