A major nanoprobe laboratory with a focus on bio/nanotechnology and biomimetics was organized in July 1991 with the initial financial support from the state of Ohio and The Ohio State University. More than 5700 square feet of laboratory space was made available for this purpose. The laboratory is populated with the modern scientific equipment needed to conduct state-of-the-art research.
ENCOMM NanoSystems Laboratory is operated by the OSU Center for Electronic and Magnetic Nanoscale Composite Multifunctional Materials. Its goal is to provide academic and industrial users with access to advanced material characterization and fabrication tools for research and development applications.
The central theme of the group's research program is the development and application of cutting-edge bio- and nano- technologies and ultrasensitive analytical methodologies to address fundamental and practical questions in chemical, biochemical and biomedical research.
The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute is Oregon's first 'Signature Research Center' for the purpose of growing research and commercialization to accelerate innovation-based economic development in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
Graduates who receive the Associate in Applied Science degree from OSU Institute of Technology in Nanoscientific instrumentation will be prepared for a career in such wide-ranging fields as aerospace, explosive detection and protection, manufacturing, biosystems, instrumentation, energy conservation, and agriculture.
The PNNL operated by Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy, is a recognized leader in nanomaterials and nanobiology. Together with other Battelle managed labs, Brookhaven National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, they represent a diverse collaborative team in nanoscience, nanoengineering and nanotechnology
PennState's Center for Nanoscale Science was established as an NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center to carry out interdiciplinary and eductaional outreach in the areas of Molecular nanofabrication, Biomolecular Motors, and Collective Phenomena in Restricted Geometries
The mission of the Center for Two Dimensional and Layered Materials is to conduct leading international and multidisciplinary research on 2D layered materials aiming at finding new phenomena and applications, that could be transformed into high impact products. The center offers a unique, vertically integrated research education to graduate and undergraduate students, with extremely valuable components including state-of-the-art infrastructure, and research environment.
