The Nanoscience Institute for Medical and Engineering Technology (NIMET) is an umbrella organization that focuses and coordinates research and educational activities at the University of Florida in the fields of nanoscale science and nanotechnology.
The SWAMP (Structural Analysis with Advanced Materials Processing) Center in the College of Engineering at the University of Florida features interdisciplinary activities aimed at understanding, optimizing, and developing new techniques for the manufacture of advanced materials. The center is devoted to understanding and modeling fundamental properties and reliability of the materials and devices involved in micro- and nano-electronics in both Si, Ge and compound semiconductors including the III-Nitrides and InGaAs.
The Fink Group focuses on the synthesis and characterization of novel multifunctional and/or hybrid particles and materials for a variety of applications, predominately in biology and medicine. The group works on a variety of interdisciplinary research projects ranging from reactor development and nanoengineering to biotechnology and surface chemistry. While addressing fundamental problems, our research efforts are also highly relevant to important societal issues such as environment and sustainability, human health and nanobiotechnology.
Atomic, Molecular, Optical, and Chemical (AMOC) Physics is mainly concerned with the common building blocks of the world around us (and beyond), i.e., with atoms, ions, electrons, molecules, and photons, and their mutual interactions. Of special interest are those phenomena that occur at temperatures and energies which are typical of the Earth's atmosphere, the atmospheres of other planets and comets, the atmospheres of stars, the gas found in interstellar clouds, and the ultracold regime of Bose-Einstein Condensates.
The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre is a new facility within Glasgow University centred on the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. The focus is on interdisciplinary research at the nanometre scale and the JWNC brings together many different research groups working in engineering and the physical and life sciences. The Centre has comprehensive micro and nanofabrication facilities housed within 750 m2 of cleanroom space including one of the most advanced large area high resolution electron beam lithography tools in the world.
The Masters in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology teaches you the skills desired by modern industry for scientists and engineers doing research, development and production in nanoscience and nanofabrication. This multidisciplinary programme will complement your background in electronics, materials science, or physics. Prestigious Scottish Funding Council Awards are available to high calibre applicants for this programme.
The group's research program is devoted to the investigation of the physical concepts of a subwavelength light technology (Nano-Optics), mainly based on surface plasmon excitations in metal nanostructures.
The group's interdisciplinary research programmes are currently concerned with projects investigating the atomistic modelling of the physical, chemical and morphological properties and dynamic behaviour of different types of nano-structures in condensed matter physics, materials science, macro-molecular and colloidal chemistry, molecular solids, nano-technology and bio- and self-replicating systems.
The research program of the Feringa group at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands is focussed on synthetic organic chemistry with a major part of the research is directed towards nanotechnology and novel functional materials, like molecular switches and motors.
The Top Master programme in Nanoscience aims to train the cutting-edge scientists of the future. This is achieved by offering a challenging interdisciplinary programme and by admitting only very talented and motivated students. The courses are taught by top international scientists, and a large part of the programme consists of actually conducting scientific research, alongside world-class scientists, using the state-of-the-art facilities of the Zernike Institute.
Within the NanoLab NL program, the infrastructure in Groningen is designed to function as the Dutch center for bottom-up (bio)molecular electronics and functional (bio)molecular nanostructures, and for the development of nanostructures based on supramolecular interactions and molecular lithography.
The classic materials triangle concerns an integrative approach in the three aspects of structure, property and chemical composition. The Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials adds an extra dimension to this traditional view by an unconventional linkage to the field of biomolecular sciences, which includes the design aspects as well.
The Suresh lab at the School of Engineering is focused on studying the nanoscale aspects of biosystems through bio-instrumentation and bio-imaging. The group fosters interdisciplinary approach to research in studies covering diverse topics of food, biological and agricultural systems.
At Guelph we have created a unique approach to nanoscience studies. Fundamental science course are combined with specially designed courses in nanoscience covering material that would previously only be found in graduate programs.
Their research activities are concentrated on nanometer-scale science and technology based on scanning probe methods (SPM). In particular, we investigate the fundamental relationship between nanostructure and nanophysical properties.
