The NanoMan project is an EU-funded research project to develop new technologies for handling and control of single molecules and nanostructures on the sub 10nm scale. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop techniques and protocols, based on atomic force microscopy (AFM), that enable manipulation of sub 10nm structures on insulating surfaces.
Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
The Nanotechnology Engagement Group has been established in the UK to support public bodies in developing a wider programme of social and ethical research and public dialogue around nanotechnology.
The NIA promotes the responsible use of nanotechnology and raises awareness of its many applications among key audiences in the UK.
The Nanotechnology KTN has been established to provide a market-oriented focus for the facilities, people and organisations engaged in Micro and Nanotechnologies in the UK and to lower entry barriers and drive the widespread market development and exploitation of these technologies.
NPL is involved with various activities and research at the Nano scale.
The Environmental Nanoscience Initiative was set up by NERC, Defra and the Environment Agency in the UK to begin to answer some questions of basic nanosciences research; into fate and behavior, ecotoxicology and ecological effects of engineering nanoparticles.
The ETM group focuses on unique strengths and capabilities to conduct world leading research, benefiting from synergies between: microelectronics; materials research and design to simulate nanostructures and technology processes and devices; fabrication in two in-house class 100-1000 clean rooms; characterisation of materials, devices and circuits; research on emerging electronic technologies
Research activities in the group encompass a wide range of themes at the cutting-edge of nanoscale science and nanotechnology - principal interests lie in the synthesis and characterisation of new nanomaterials, such as nanodiamonds, silicon nanocrystals, gold nitride (AuN) and photon reactions on ice.
Wide range of nanoscience research
The group is working on Rotary Molecular Motors. In particular the Bacterial Flagellar Motor and F1-ATPase. The aim is to try and understand how these living machines work.
This advanced modular course is delivered by leading scientists and experts in this rapidly developing field and has been specifically designed for those who would value a part-time modular learning structure, for example those in full-time employment, both in the UK and overseas. The MSc is designed to be completed part-time, normally over a two- to three-year period, and so provides a path to career development that is flexible and recognised within academia and industry. The programme comprises three online modules exploring the fundamentals of science and materials characterisation at the nanoscale, three intensive five-day face-to-face modules describing the clinical and commercial application of such science, and a piece of original lab-based research leading to the submission of a dissertation.
The course consists of three modules: The Wider Context of Nanotechnology; The Fundamental Science of Nanotechnology; Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology.
The research carried out by the Centre covers two themes, nanoscale functional materials and devices and nanooptics and plasmonics.
Research includes nanoscale amterials such as nano polymers.
