The Unit has brought together a multi-disciplinary group of staff from a range of disciplines to undertake various forms of advanced materials research, including such topics as composites, materials characterisation, sensors, biomaterials, plasma processing, metal forming, nanoscience and nanofabrication.
NIBEC represents a consolidation of eight advanced functional materials research groups, dealing with thin film material types used in electronics, photonics, nanotechnology, sensors, MEMS, optical, environmental, magnetic and bio-material devices.
The research lab of Prof. Massood Tabib-Azar at the University of Utah's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering studies include non-volatile memory devices, microfluidics, microwave technologies for nanometrology, MEMS and NEMS, molecular electronics, and novel electronic materials (carbon nanotubes, and nano-particles) and devices.
Research interests of the group is focused on quantum nanophysics with large molecules and nanoparticles: Matter-wave coherence, interference and decoherence; Quantum-enhanced molecule & cluster metrology; New trapping and cooling schemes; New molecular beam and detection methods.
The research activity of the Colloid Chemistry Group is focused on the synthesis and formation mechanisms of metal, semiconductor, magnetic and hybrid nanoparticles with controlled composition, size and morphology; the creation of colloidal composites; nanostructured thin films and nanoparticle ordered arrays in two and three dimensions; the optical characterization of nanoparticles and their assemblies; and the use of metal nanoparticles as biosensors. The group is closely linked to the BioNanoPlasmonics Lab at CIC biomaGUNE.
Nanoscale Materials Characterization Facility ? NMCF is located in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at the University of Virginia (UVa) is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to microscopy and microanalysis of materials from atomic to microscopic levels.
The Institute for Nanoscale and Quantum Scientific and Technological Advanced Research (nanoSTAR) is a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team striving to advance research & development at the nanoscale. They have efforts in three main thrust areas: nano and quantum electronics, nanomedicine, and nanotechnology for energy and the environment.
Das Ziel der Ausbildung ist es, den Studierenden Kenntnisse auf den wichtigsten Teilgebieten der Nanostrukturtechnik zu vermitteln und sie mit den Methoden des ingenieurwissenschaftlichen und physikalischen Denkens und Arbeitens vertraut zu machen.
Als forschungsorientierter und zeitlich komprimierter Studiengang der Fakultät für Physik und Astronomie der Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg wird der Studiengang FOKUS Physik-Nanostrukturtechnik im Rahmen des Elitenetzwerks Bayern (ENB) mit dem Abschluss Master of Science with Honors angeboten. Das Studium zum Master of Science bereitet auf die wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeiten in Forschung und Entwicklung im Fachgebiet Nanowissenschaften vor.
Das Studium zum Master of Science bereitet auf wissenschaftliche Tätigkeiten im Fachgebiet Nanostrukturtechnik vor. Es bereitet auch auf eine Promotion zum Dr. rer. nat. oder Dr.-Ing. vor. Das Ziel der Ausbildung ist es, den Studierenden vertiefte Kenntnis des wissenschaftlichen Arbeitens in der Forschung und Anwendung der Nanowissenschaften und seiner inhaltlichen Grundlagen zu vermitteln.
The physics of quantum transport and its application in novel nanoelectronic device concepts represent main activities of the group's research. Based on monolithic designs they focus on the development of: nanoelectronic logics; single quantum dot memories; mesoscopic sensors.
As dimensions shrink to the nanometre range, and the range of applications broadens, silicon-based technology requires increasing input from the academic community and the Warwick Nano-Silicon Group is committed to playing a central role, both in the UK and on the world stage. Most of our work is in collaborative projects with partners from UK and other European universities, advanced research institutes such as IMEC and LETI, and from industry.
After admission to a participating department, graduate students can apply for our 'Option Ph.D. in Nanotechnology' program. Fulfillment of both departmental and Nanotechnology Program requirements will lead to a Ph. D. in Nanotechnology and the chosen discipline.
The NanoTech User Facility (NTUF) is available to both academic and industrial users nationwide. NTUF houses leading-edge instruments for characterization and fabrication at the micro- and nanoscales. Imaging tools include a field-emission scanning transmission electron microscope (S/TEM) with tomography capability, a field-emission scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy-dispersed spectrometry, a laser scanning confocal microscope, a Raman confocal microscope, a fluorescence microscope, and two Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs). Fabrication tools include a fully equipped soft lithography shop and electron beam lithography capability in the SEM.
The Nanotechnology Engineering honours degree program is designed to provide a practical education in key areas of nanotechnology, including the fundamental chemistry, physics, and engineering of nanostructures or nanosystems, as well as the theories and techniques used to model, design, fabricate, or characterize them. Great emphasis is placed on training with modern instrumentation techniques as used in the research and development of these emerging technologies.
The interdisciplinary research programs, jointly offered by three departments in the Faculty of Science and four in the Faculty of Engineering, provide students with a stimulating educational environment that spans from basic research through to application. The goal of the collaborative programs is to allow students to gain perspectives on nanotechnology from a wide community of scholars within and outside their disciplines in both course and thesis work. The MASc and MSc degree collaborative programs provide a strong foundation in the emerging areas of nano-science or nano-engineering in preparation for the workforce or for further graduate study and research leading to a doctoral degree.
