Elimelech's group at Yale focuses on problems involving physiochemical and biophysical processes in engineered and natural environmental systems. The lab's work is at the interface of several disciplines, including colloid/surface science, molecular biology, nanotechnology, and separation science.
This research group studies condensed matter systems, often in the solid state, using first principles or ab initio methods. Topics include properties of nanostructures, especially nanowires and nanotubes.
The Mark A. Reed Group at Yale University focuses on research in semiconductor nanowires and devices, quantum electron devices, transport phenomena in semiconductor heterojunction and nanostructured systems, reduced dimensionality effects, resonant tunneling transistors and circuits, novel heterojunction devices, molecular electronics, MEMS, bioMEMS, and nanotechnology.
Quantronics Laboratory (Qlab) explores the world of mesoscopic electronics. Using superconducting electrical circuits and microwave measurement techniques, the group coaxes typically classical degrees of freedom like currents and voltages into quantum mechanical behavior. The present focus is on applications to Quantum Computation.
The research of the lab interfaces with condensed matter physics, materials science, and biophysics. Current research projects involve the development of synthesis and crystal growth of novel carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes and fullerenes.
Zhejing California International NanoSystems Institute (ZCNI) is a first of its kind research and technology innovation platform in China established on June, 2005 at Hangzhou, Zhejiang, which is the joint effort among Zhejiang Provincial Government, Zhejiang University (ZJU), California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), and whose mission is to accelerate the application of nanotechnology in biology, medicine, material, information technology, chemistry etc.
(site in German) Im Fokus der Fachgruppe Funktionelle Materialien und Nanotechnologie liegen die Modifizierung und Analytik von Oberflächen sowie die Entwicklung von Anwendungen im Bereich der Chemie und Biologie: Funktions- und Biomaterialien; Nanotechnik; Oberflächenanalytik; Filtrationsmethoden in der industriellen Chemie.
Major applications at this time are the medical and molecular diagnostics ( genomics and proteomics), drug-targeting, sensors, nanobots, nutraceuticals, coatings and biological computing. CEL wants to dissimeninate this technology from research centres into applications and education. In addition, CEL wants to contribute to a sustainable nanotechnology and communicate applications and risks with potential users.
