The group's research focuses on the preparation of ultra-small semiconductor structures with the aim to investigate experimentally new, unusual and unexpected physical systems. In particular they are interested in structures that operate at the crossover between classical physics and quantum physics.
The group targets manufacturing techniques for the micro and nano-scale that rely on assembly principles observed in living cells. They particularly focus on maskless techniques outside of cleanrooms, at the solid-liquid interface, and suitable for a wide range of materials.
The interdisciplinary curriculum is centred on mechanical and electrical engineering courses of importance for micro and nanosystems engineers, complemented by courses in physics, chemistry, biology, material science, computational science, business administration and management.
Swiss Nano-Cube is a new interactive knowledge and education platform for micro and nanotechnology. It aims to spark interest in nanotechnology and engineering among students and young professionals. It is addressed to teachers and students of vocational schools, secondary schools as well as higher professional schools.
The Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) is the only title recognized by the confederation for postgraduate studies at the master level in the natural and engineering sciences. The Master of Advanced Studies is euro compatible.
The mission of the TASC-INFM National Laboratory is twofold: 1) It serves as a national resource for the solid state physics materials science, and synchrotron radiation spectroscopy communities, and 2) it implements a number of advanced in-house research programs including growth and elaboration of new materials and nanostructures.
29 departments and junior research groups from different faculties outline the scientific Institute for Micro- and Nanotechnologies (IMN) which is formed with the aim to collaboratively perform research and training in an interdisciplinary manner in the sectors of materials research, the patterning of micro- and nanostructures, upto the realization of complete devices and systems for industrial applications.
MacroNano®is a Centre for Innovation Competence within the scope of the BMBF-Innovation Initiative "Unternehmen Region", funded for 5 years by the BMBF and supported by the Thuringian Ministry of Culture. MacroNano is resident at the Technical University of Ilmenau, and cuts into two Junior Research Groups: "Microfluidics and Biosensors" and "Functionalised Peripherics".
Ziel des Studiengangs ist es, die naturwissenschaftlichen und technologischen Grundlagen fü?r die Erzeugung von Mikro- und Nanostrukturen zu vermitteln und die Studenten innerhalb der Studienrichtung zu befähigen, zukünftige Entwicklungen zu Mikro- und Nanotechnologien sowie nanotechnischen Systemen voranzutreiben.
Methodologies leading toward control of matter at the nanoscale. For top-down fabrication methods like lithography, writing, or stamping are used to define the desired features. The bottom-up techniques exploit self-processes for ordering of supramolecular or solid state architectures from the atomic to the mesosopic scale.
The Centre for Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials at the Technical University Munich is devoted to research, development and teaching in the area of nanoscience, nanotechnology, associated materials science and life science.
CEN houses 7 new microscopes built by FEI ranging from a standard SEM instrument to two highly specialized Titan TEMs. The new unit represents an exciting opportunity that will allow DTU and Denmark to be at the forefront of research utilizing all forms of electron microscopy and will be available for use by both in-house and external users.
The main objective of the Danish National Research Foundation Center for Individual Nanoparticle Functionality (CINF) at DTU is to explore and understand the fundamental relations between surface morphology and reactivity on the nanometer scale.
MIC is the department for micro- and nanotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark.MIC's mission is to: educate scientists and engineers, conduct research and development in micro and nanotechnology, and transfer new technologies to Danish industry, through joint programmes.
The Biotechnological Centre (BIOTEC) of the Technische Universität Dresden is a unique interdisciplinary centre focussing on research and teaching in molecular bio-engineering. The BIOTEC hosts top international research groups dedicated to genomics, proteomics, biophysics, cellular machine, tissue engineering, and bioinformatics.
The program Molecular Bioengineering aims to teach students the fundamentals in biomedicine and bio-nanotechnology combining biology and technology, which are linked in two ways: On the one hand, biological knowledge on cells is applied to develop the notion of molecular factories; on the other hand, nanotechnology and bioinformatics are enabling technologies applicable to engineer biomaterials for medical applications.
The 2-year master program aims to teach students the fundamentals in biophysics and bio-nanotechnology with a twofold aim: to use nanotechnological approaches to better characterize and understand complex molecular machines such as biomolecules, but also to harness these molecules in technological systems or use them as templates or model systems for a bottom-up nanotechnology.
