A certification in Nanoscale Science and Technology documents that a graduate student has mastered fundamental principles and practical implications in the core areas of the field. The certification program is open to all graduate students in good standing at Penn and is designed such that students in BE, CBE, ESE, MEAM, and MSE can accomplish this within their degree program, i.e. without extending the time to graduation.
Six courses constitute the nanotechnology minor.
The Institute of NanoScience and Engineering is an integrated, multidisciplinary organization that brings coherence to the University's research efforts and resources in the fields of nanoscale science and engineering.
Research interests of this group are in areas of molecular recognition at nanoscale and nanotechnology enabled chemical and biological sensing.
The Swanson Center for Micro and Nano Systems represents the University of Pittsburgh School of Engineering's focus on applied research into micro and nano systems.
Project areas include: Nanostructured materials for biological sensing; Nanoporous membranes; Nanoparticle-based drug delivery; Imaging, transport, and toxicity properties of semiconductor nanocrystals; Nanobiomechanics
The group manipulates materials on the micro, nano and molecular level scales to design novel biomedical devices. In particular they exploit the optical, morphological and surface chemical properties of nanomaterials and investigate their potential toxicity in developing Smart Bandages for treatment of chronic skin disorders and wound healing.
Includes a research focus on near-field optical spectroscopy, nano-lithography, nano-inspection.
The group's research goal is a complete understanding of the fundamental properties of materials with a size in between individual molecules and the bulk. Currently, their investigations are focused on fundamental studies of carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanocrystals, and the integration of these materials into both novel non-linear optical devices and biological sensors.
The group works on the design, synthesis, characterization and evaluation of lipid- and/or polymer-based nanostructured biomaterials. One specific interest lies in developing nanomaterials for healthcare and other medical applications, for example, drug delivery to improve or enable treatments of human diseases. In addition, we also seek to understand the fundamental sciences underlying the arenas of nanomedicine.
Xiaodong Li's lab at USC.
The group's overall research objective focuses on the development of hierarchically structured nanomaterials to study cell-cell interactions and the cooperative response of cells to extracellular matrixes.
The USC NanoCenter is the University's focal point for science and engineering studies of nanometer-scale structures, their unique properties, and their integration into functional units.
The NNRC is a university-wide user fabrication and metrology center providing state-of-the-art equipment, professional support personnel and infrastructure to enable multidisciplinary research in nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing methods related to fundamental materials science, sensors, actuators, electronics, bio-systems, medical products, optics and integrated nanoscale systems.
The Madhukar Group's research has revolved around electronic response (electrical and optical) of synthesized materials and structures in reduced (two, one, and zero) dimensions and their potential use in electronic and optoelectronic devices for information sensing, processing, imaging and computing technologies. The emphasis for some time has been on three dimensionally confined (i.e. zero dimensional) nanostructures called quantum dots and the scope in recent years has expanded to include biochemical materials (peptides, proteins) and hybrid semiconductor-biomolecular nanostructures for biomedical applications, particularly neural prostheses.
