The three objectives for the center are 1) to promote and coordinate large-scale interdisciplinary research programs in nano-science and technology. 2) to plan and to co-ordinate cross-disciplinary undergraduate and postgraduate training in nano-science and technology. 3) to serve as a bridge between the university's nano-research and the industrial application in nanotechnology.
The main objective of this center is to educate hi-tech professionals demanded both in academic and industrial fields, which will consequently promote academic research in electronics and forward the development of IC industry.
With one of the best facilities and multidisciplinary expertise in nanoscience, nanotechnology and microsystems, the Center has about 120 dedicated doctoral research members with a broad spectrum of backgrounds from colleges of engineering, electrical and computer engineering, sciences, and medicine.
The center aims to integrate all teaching resources to promote comprehensive nanotechnology-based education in eastern Taiwan. In order to improving the public understanding of science in nanotechnology in eastern Taiwan, they also have projects about public science education.
The group of Prof. Chen focuses on these areas: Nanofabrications and nano-scale lithography; Optoelectronic devices with nanostructures; Optical Thin Films; Nano-scale semiconductor processing technologies; Optoelectronic materials and nanomaterials; Antireflective coating technologies
Metal nanomaterials of different sizes, shapes, and structures are finding increasing acceptance in biological applications. Metal nanomaterials can be interfaced with biological materials to form a new class of designer organic-inorganic hybrids (BioNanoMetals) which can be used to enable the green synthesis of metal nanomaterials and the safe use of nanometals in biomedical applications. The group is interested in investigating the basic design principles for functional BioNanoMetals and addressing fundamental issues on the interactions between the biological systems and metal nanomaterials.
Founded by faculty from Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Physics, the Centre for BioImaging Sciences's (CBIS) research is focused on the science and application of biological imaging by light and electron microscopy and the development of computational and microscopy-based methods and technologies.
In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$ 50 M grant over the next 10 years in order to support the operational costs of GRC's labs and micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials of which graphene is the most famous, creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, directed by Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto.
Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.
Their mission is to investigate the natural structure-property-function relationship of cells and molecules so as to further understand the physiological functions and establish possible connections to human diseases.
The group is particularly interested in discovering novel nanobiology of nanomaterials. Some of this nanobiology is detrimental to the organism's well being and some is beneficial. The differentiation of either conclusion depends heavily on our understanding of how nanomaterials interact with biological systems. The group approaches their work from an observation initiated and hypothesis driven manner. From these findings, they aim to develop nanoparticle specific rules that drive certain cell effect. Understanding these rules helps to design better nanoparticles.
Excellent students from all scientific and engineering, as well as biomedical disciplines are welcome to apply for NanoCore PhD Scholarships. Students whom we are recruiting typically are in the top 10% of their class and have shown the ambition and ability to immerse themselves in challenging, high impact research projects. We also highly welcome students who have entrepreneurial ambitions.
Graphene is a new age multifunctional material. As chemists, we are engaged in the growth, processing, derivatizing of graphene to make dna sensors, hybrids for solar cells, membrane for water purification. We hope to improve the quality of human life by researching on graphene, which we believe to be a fundamental building block for many useful devices.
Located at North Dakota State University, Fargo, the NDSU Center for Nanoscale Science and Engineering provides research and development with world-class facilities, equipment and staff with broad-based expertise.
