CNMM is a joint venture between the University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Its mission is to advance the science and technology of manufacturing and realization of products based on the use of the unique properties achieved at the nanoscale.
CNER is an Army funded center and exists at four university sites, with the University of Minnesota as the lead institution.Its mission includes developing new methods for nanoparticle growth and surface passivation and developing new Sol-Gel methods for generation of nanostructured materials with emphasis on energy release.
Professor Bowen's research interests are centered around clusters and nanoparticles. A major objective of Dr. Bowen's research is to provide a molecule's eye view of many-body, condensed phase interactions. The study of size-specific and composition-specific clusters provides an incisive means of addressing this fundamental and longstanding problem in physical chemistry.
The Institute for Nanobiotechnology has been established at Hopkins to bring together expertise from the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, biology, medicine, and engineering to enable the creation of new knowledge and new technologies.
The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), one of 26 MRSECs funded by the National Science Foundation, is composed of scientists at JHU, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Research in the Center focuses on the science and engineering of magnetoelectronics. Research focuses on magnetic nanostructures.
The School's Engineering Programs for Professionals offers the Nanotechnology Option with the Master of Materials Science and Engineering program. Within the option, students can pursue a concentration in nanomaterials or biotechnology.
Maryland NanoCenter has been established as a partnership among three University of Maryland colleges: The A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences (CMPS), and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences, with sustaining support from all three and the campus.
To meet the rapidly growing interest of students in nano, and to create the nano workforce of the future, Maryland NanoCenter offers an innovative undergraduate program, the Interdisciplinary Minor Program in Nanoscale Science and Technology, drawing faculty and courses from multiple departments of the A. James Clark School of Engineering, the College of Computer, Math, and Physical Sciences, and the College of Chemical and Life Sciences. The program is open to any student majoring in Engineering, Physics, or Chemistry.
JILA is an institute for interdisciplinary research and graduate education in the physical sciences, operated jointly by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder, and involving NIST Quantum Physics Division 848 researchers. These NIST scientists participate in a variety of nanotechnology activities, several of which are summarized here
