Supported by companies such as Procter and Gamble, BP International, Thomas Swan & Co., Nexia Solutions, Imerys, SmartBead Technologies and LOT-Oriel, the European Nanotechnology Trade Alliance, ENTA, has recently been created to represent the interests of nanotechnology businesses across Europe. It will act to bridge the gap between industry, governments, science, and importantly, the public. Its aim is to promote the benefits of nanotechnology, while supporting all actions that ensure new nanotechnologies are developed in a safe and responsible manner.
Euspen is a community of leading industrialists and researchers working in the field of precision, micro and nano engineering with representation across 32 countries worldwide. Euspen's focus is on: Nano-precision manufacturing; Design and build of ultra-precision machine systems; Characterisation: metrology systems, instruments and techniques.
The Centre brings together many different research groups working in engineering and the physical and life sciences. The Centre has comprehensive micro and nanofabrication facilities including one of the most advanced large area high resolution electron beam lithography tools in the world.
This programme is attractive to students with an interdisciplinary interest in chemistry, physics and mathematics, and their engineering applications. Chemists have always been nanotechnologists because molecules are about one thousandth-millionth of a metre in size. The programme combines core Chemistry with Nanochemistry, Nanophysics and Microengineering. Nanotechnology finds application (and will expand into new applications) in areas as diverse as Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicine, Microelectronics, Communications and Aerospace.
This 4-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.
This 4/5-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.
The Organophotonics Research Group has three separate nanotechnology projects at the moment. They involve composite structures of II-IV semiconductor nanocrystals or nanotubes in organic polymer matrices for electroluminescent displays or photovoltaic cells.
Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting edge research, this flagship course will train the next generation of nanotechnologists. The course is associated with the London Centre for Nanotechnology, a joint venture between Imperial College London and UCL, allowing a wider choice of collaborative opportunities.
The main research topics are: Nanomagnetic Logic Devices; Nanoscale Hall-probe Devices; Technology for Preventing Forgery; Smart Nanoparticles for Targeted Cancer Treatment; Fundamental Properties of Nanoscale Magnetism.
The IoN works closely with governments, universities, researchers, and companies worldwide on developing and promoting all aspects of nanotechnology. It also serves as a key organizer of international scientific events, conferences, and educational courses designed to encourage nanotechnology takeup by industry, as well as stimulating interest in less developed countries.
The IRC is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, University College London and the University of Bristol. The IRC will provide an underpinning interdisciplinary activity in Nanotechnology with the theme of understanding and controlling the physical properties of nanostructures and devices by fabrication at single molecule precision. The primary aim is to establish the IRC as an Internationally leading centre for Nanotechnology
