SWAN is one of the three centers created in 2006 by the Semiconductor Research Corporation Nanoelectronics Research Initiative ( SRC-NRI) to find a replacement to conventional metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. SRC-NRI is a consortium of TI, Freescale, AMD, MICRON, Intel and IBM.
The research group of Walter Hu focuses on integrating nanoscale elements of electronics, chemistry, and biology. Such nano-bio-engineering fusion may provide rare opportunities to explore new science and applications.
The Department of NanoMedicine and Biomedical Engineering is focused on inter-disciplinary research combining NanoMedicine, Biomedical Engineering and computational sciences to develop novel therapeutic and diagnostic platforms for combating diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infectious diseases.
The research lab of Prof. Massood Tabib-Azar at the University of Utah's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering studies include non-volatile memory devices, microfluidics, microwave technologies for nanometrology, MEMS and NEMS, molecular electronics, and novel electronic materials (carbon nanotubes, and nano-particles) and devices.
Nanoscale Materials Characterization Facility ? NMCF is located in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) at the University of Virginia (UVa) is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to microscopy and microanalysis of materials from atomic to microscopic levels.
The Institute for Nanoscale and Quantum Scientific and Technological Advanced Research (nanoSTAR) is a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team striving to advance research & development at the nanoscale. They have efforts in three main thrust areas: nano and quantum electronics, nanomedicine, and nanotechnology for energy and the environment.
After admission to a participating department, graduate students can apply for our 'Option Ph.D. in Nanotechnology' program. Fulfillment of both departmental and Nanotechnology Program requirements will lead to a Ph. D. in Nanotechnology and the chosen discipline.
