SnIRC is based on existing collaborations between the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburgh, Napier University, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh University and the US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) is a DOE BES national user facility. The distinguishing characteristic of CINT is its emphasis on exploring the path from scientific discovery to the integration of nanostructures into the micro and macro worlds.
Provides new scientific knowledge in support of Sandia's national security mission, especially in the areas of nuclear weapons, energy and infrastructure assurance, nonproliferation and assessments, military technology and applications, and homeland security.
The project is based on the observation that diatoms, which are small unicellular algae, possess internal silica skeletons that are laid down due to the silica precipitating activity of specialised proteins called silaffins. These proteins have a highly repeating structure in which the repeated sequences are decorated with additional amine and phosphate groups. Whilst silaffins themselves are potent silica precipitants, synthetic peptides corresponding to these repeats will also act as silicating agents and will allow silica nanoparticles to be generated, provided phosphate is also supplied.
The Centre was established to carry out research on cutting-edge technologies in two of the most crucial sectors in the world - Healthcare and Energy. The Centre aims to develop products based on nanomaterials that could be commercialized in the near future.
The leading area of research includes nanomaterials, nanotechnology, nanocomposites, nanoelectronics, nanofabrication. In addition to research, the centre also conducts training and awareness programmes, workshops national and international conferences on recent trends and developments of Nanoscience on various themes of national interests. The centre is undertaking research and development projects from various agencies and is offering consultancy services to in industries and research organizations in India and abroad.

The mission of the Nanoscale Materials Technology program is to provide students a foundation in materials science, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and electronics. With strong supporting courses in Computer Aided Drafting, Vacuum Science and Technology, and Thin Film Deposition Techniques, students will be prepared for employment as highly qualified technicians in the emerging and highly technical semiconductor and superconductor manufacturing and research and development field.
The STS Initiative's Nanoscience and Society Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst brings together faculty from five research centers and seven degree-granting departments and programs within SBS engaged with several dimensions of the societal implications of nanotechnology.
The scientific goal of the EUROCORES Program SONS is to develop cross-disciplinary research at the interface between Chemistry, Materials Science, Nanoscience, Physics and Electrical Engineering. This research program concerns the utilization of supramolecular interactions for the synthesis and positioning of functional assemblies, macromolecules, dendrimers, liquid crystals, tailor-made polymers and inorganic nanoparticles.
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) is the premier trade association representing the U.S. semiconductor industry, uniting 95 companies responsible for more than 85 percent of semiconductor production in this country.
A technology of 'smart' materials and nanotechnology, which involves the study, control and manipulation of materials at the nanoscale. Nanotechnology research is focussing mainly on four major sectors nanoelectronics, nanobiotechnology, nanomaterials, and nanomanufacturing.
The objective of SNU Graphene Research Lab. is to develop futuristic 2-dimensional nanomaterials with enhanced physical/chemical/biological and electrical/mechanical/optical properties, which can be applied to overcome the current limits of IT/BT/ET technologies.
The Major research activities in nano fabrication laboratory (NFL) are focused into two important technologies in materials science and engineering, which are nanotechnology and thin-film technology. For the contribution in nanotechnology, the key technology, the quantum dot formation is investigated by two major methods to form quantum dot, which are top-down and bottom-up approaches.
