Modelling for Nanotechnology (M4nano) is a WEB-based initiative leaded by four Spanish Institutions: Phantoms Foundation, Parque Cientifico de Madrid (PCM), Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM) and Universidad Complutense to maintain a systematic flow of information among research groups and therefore avoid that research efforts in Nanomodelling remain fragmented.
The focus of MODERN (MOdeling and DEsign of Reliable, process variation-aware Nanoelectronic devices, circuits and systems) is to develop new design tools and methodology for transistors and circuits at the nanoscale which will enable the manufacturing of reliable, low cost, low electromagnetic interference, high-yield complex silicon chips and corresponding products using unreliable and variable devices.
The MONA project (Merging Optics and Nanotechnologies) has been launched in June 2005 by the European Commission in order to bridge the gap between photonics and nanotechnologies. The ultimate objective of the project is the development of a European roadmap for photonics and nanotechnologies.
The Monash Centre for Atomically Thin Materials (MCATM) fosters collaboration among existing researchers at the university, bringing them together with those with expertise in atomically thin materials, as well as encouraging partnerships with international partners and industry. It also provides a highly multidisciplinary environment to train early career researchers and students.
The ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology is a national innovator in bio-nano sciences and an incubator of the expertise and technological excellence required to develop next generation bio-responsive nanomaterials.
The Center for Bio-Inspired Nanomaterials (CBIN) at Montana State University is a multidisciplinary research and education center focused on utilizing and expanding our fundamental understanding of the formation and hierarchical construction of biological materials such as viruses, cells, and biominerals (bones, teeth, seashells etc.).
Among other areas, the group works on biosensor chips based on graphene, graphene oxide and carbon nanotubes that will improve the analysis of biochemical reactions and accelerate the development of novel drugs.
The objective of the laboratory is the research of quantum phenomenon in semiconductors and hybrid nanostructures. The combination of reduced dimension, topological non-triviality of electron spectrum, strong coupling and possibilities of nanolithography provides these systems with a set of unique physical attributes. Modern experimental methods in electronic measurements, including a technique for measuring quantum fluctuation noise, ultrasensitive radio-frequency and microwave measurements, minute transport measurements in strong magnetic fields and ultralow temperatures are planned to be implemented in the laboratory.
Main lines of research are: Mesoscopic electronic systems; Superconducting hybrid structures; Quantum phase transitions; Spintronics; The two-dimensional electron gas and the quantum Hall effect; Quantum magnetism and systems with "topological order"; Physics of quantum computation.
The CARBIO partners apply a multidisciplinary approach to exploit the potential of multi-functional carbon nanotubes (CNT) for biomedical applications, in particular to act as magnetic nano-heaters, drug-carrier systems and sensors which allow a diagnostic and therapeutic usage on a cellular level.
The goal of the MultiPlat project is to develop biomimetic proton conductive membranes with nanometer thickness (nanomembranes) through convergence of the number of fields. The primary application of this multipurpose nanotechnological platform is the next generation of fuel cells where it will replace the prevailing evolutionary modifications of the state of the art solutions.
MULTIPROTECT is an Integrated Project within the thematic priority of 'Nanotechnology and Nanosciences, knowledgebased multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices' of the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The consortium aims to provide a generally applicable, highly innovative, heavy metal free, multifunctional and corrosion preventing surface technology on the basis of smart nanocomposite materials with new nanoparticles as functional design elements.
The European MUNDIS project will develop an angular position contact-less sensor, using an innovative approach to BMR based on the development of Multiple Nanocontact Devices (MUNDs), that will improve the performance of current contactless sensors with a lower price.
This internationally recognized Master of Science (M. Sc.) course of study offers students of the natural sciences an advanced degree coupled with practical experience. The Course of Study may be completed in three semesters of full-time study or over a longer period of time for students whose professions only permit part-time study.
Murdoch University offers the undergraduate degree Bachelor of Science in Nanoscience which may be completed in three years of full-time study or over a longer period on a part-time basis. A fourth year of study and research is available if you are selected for an Honours degree.
With this course you will explore classical and modern physics, investigating the physical world around us and beyond. You'll also learn about Nanoscience, the science of the really small, and gain an understanding of the rules and complexities of physics at finer and finer levels.
The Graduate Diploma in Nanoscience program is available to graduate students who wish to upgrade their degree to include a specialisation in the newly developing field of Nanoscience. It provides both a theoretical background as well as practical experience which is gained from completing a major project.
The project MUST aims at providing new technologies based on active multi-level protective systems for future vehicle materials. 'Smart' release nanocontainers will be developed and incorporated in commercial paints, lacquers and adhesive systems to prepare new products exhibiting self-healing properties.
