This consortium is sponsored by European Community under Framework Program 6. It gathers 15 research and industrial partners to improve the fundamental knowledge of carbon nanotubes as well as their applications.
A non-profit research organization that brings together the various elements, across international boundaries, which are required for successfully transitioning exciting micro-nano technologies into aerospace systems.
The aim of CarbonInspired is the creation and consolidation of a knowledge transfer network about nanomaterials, focused in the automobile and building sector within the SUDOE Space (Spain, Portugal and south of France). The network will bring you nanomaterials within reach, providing you with the neccesary help to tranfer these innovations to your own company through free services of market analysis, technological watch and knowledge transfer.
In this project, the team plans to take advantage of the extraordinary electronic and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes. We plan to extend the operation of HEMT/FET-type nanotube devices to the quantum limit, and to demonstrate their usefulness in conjunction with a mechanical nanotube resonator serving as a force sensor at sub-attoNewton resolution.
Apart from research and development in all major areas of Advanced Manufacturing the Centre offers a service providing rapid prototyping, tooling and micro/nanofabrication (EDM, wire EDM, milling, laser ablation, FIB machining/deposition, hot embossing, injection moulding, nano-imprinting) to companies in the UK and beyond.
This concentration allows students to study atoms and molecules used to create computer chips and other devices that are the size of a few nanometres - thousands of times smaller than current technology permits. Such discoveries will be useful in a number of fields, including aerospace, medicine, and electronics.
At Carleton, you will examine nanoscience through the disciplines of physical chemistry and electrical engineering to understand the physical, chemical and electronic characteristics of matter in this size regime. The combination of these two areas of study will equip you to fully understand nanoscience in photonic, electronic, energy and communication technologies. The focus of the program will be on materials - their use in electronic devices, their scalability and control of their properties.
The Center for Silicon System Implementation (CSSI) is focused on all aspects of integrated system design and manufacturing that spans from network-on-achip architectures to self-adaptable analog and digital circuits, to ultra low-power nano devices, bio chips, and the CAD methodologies that enable them.
Carolina Institute for NanoMedicine (CINM) was established in 2010 as an umbrella program to support multidisciplinary nanotechnology research among investigators from variety of backgrounds including College of Arts & Sciences, UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, and UNC School of Medicine. The goal of CINM is to improve human health by enhancing the scientific knowledge as well as the transition of basic research discoveries into clinical trials. CINM harbors two centers: The Carolina Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (C-CCNE) and The Center for Nanotechnology in Drug Delivery (CNDD)
The center's mission is to pursue an integrated science and engineering program by utilizing emerging carbon nanotechnology to develop new materials, devices and systems. One of their unique strengths is applying advanced synthetic methods to the development of advanced carbon nanomaterials with well-defined, multidimensional structures for multifunctional applications, including electrochemical energy conversion and storage.
The recent EUREKA programme CATRENE (Cluster for Application and Technology Research in Europe on NanoElectronics) will effect Technological Leadership for a competitive European ICT industry. It is the ambition of Europe and the European companies to deliver nano-/microelectronics solutions that respond to the needs of society at large, improving the economic prosperity of Europe and reinforcing the ability of its industry to be at the forefront of the global competition. CATRENE builds on the successful previous EUREKA programmes JESSI, MEDEA, and MEDEA+ in fostering the continued development of a dynamic European ecosystem with the critical mass necessary to compete at a global level in high technology industries.
(Website in French) One of the largest applied research laboratories in Micro and Nanotechnologies in Europe, it focuses on microelectronics and microsystems on silicon, systems for biology and health, and optoelectronic and components.
The lab's goal is to understand the fundamental design principles of cellular control systems and to apply these principles to engineer cells or cell-like devices with novel, 'smart' therapeutic functions.
CellNanoTox, 'Cellular Interaction and Toxicology with Engineered Nanoparticles', is a Specific Targeted Research Project funded by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Program. The project addresses the needs of the European society for assessing the risk of occupational and general population exposure to industrially manufactured nanoparticles. It is expected to generate new knowledge on potential health risk or the absence of it, providing objective arguments for recommendations and regulations.
CellPROM - beginning March 2004 - is the largest Integrated Project within the NMP priority of the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. CellPROM unites 27 academic and industrial researchers from 12 countries for a period of four years to achieve its main objective of non-invasive 'reprogramming' of individual cells on an industrial scale.
The purpose of CEMES is to manufacture, understand, model and manipulate matter at the atomic scale. In CEMES, physicists and chemists invent (nano) materials and molecules of desired properties and integrate them into demonstrating devices. CEMES mostly aims at: establishing the link between the atomic structure/composition and the physical properties of (nano)materials; designing, synthesizing and studying the first prototypes of molecular nano-machines; and inventing and/or developing new instruments and techniques able to study these 'objects' at the pertinent scales (space and time).
Can one establish a communication with a single molecule and get it to compute? How to guide light energy on a surface down to a single fluorescing molecule and trigger its emission? These two questions share the challenge to build new integrated architectures able to funnel electrons and photons through waveguides that shrink by a factor 1000 between the macroscopic and the single molecule worlds. The COMOSYEL project and team led by Erik DUJARDIN in CEMES and funded by the European Reseach Council (ERC) aim at tackling these fascinating concepts through several experimental approaches.
