The group's research focuses on quantum properties of ultra-small semiconductor and organic structures with the aim to investigate theoretically new, unusual and unexpected phenomena. In particular they are interested in structures that operate in the quantum regime where several exciting and still unresolved puzzles await their discovery.
Research activities in the field of Surface engineering for high temperature: Study of corrosion behaviour of protective coatings at high temperature. Within this field the national and international projects that focus in developing new protective coating for the power generation and aerospace industry as well as the study of corrosion behaviour in very aggressive environments.
The Interuniversitary Master in Nanosciencie and Molecular Nanotechnology does not have precedents nationally since he discusses the aspects placed in the intersection of one science at his peak as he is Nanosciencie with the more traditional molecular systems . It influences, therefore, scientific areas of present-day interest like Molecular Electronics , Molecular Magnetism , the Supramolecular Chemistry , Physics at Superficies, or the Molecular Materials Science.
The Microsystems and Nanotechnology group deals with Opto- and Electro-mechanical systems, MEMS and MOEMS. Optical detection modulation with piezoelectric devices; Physical, chemical and biological sensors (optical, piezoelectric, electrochemical). Polymer deposition; Nanoparticles, nanostructures and nanodevices; Atomic Force Microscope and Electron Beam Lithography.
The 10-semester Nanotechnology Engineering program addresses the use, acquisition, development, implementation, evaluation, control, or suggestion of the use, application, development or acquisition of materials or components that work at the nanoscale.
University of Madeira andCentro de Quimica da Madeira, Madeira Island, Portugal, invite applicants with a Bachelor or a Master degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Life Sciences, Materials, Physics or related sciences/engineering courses to apply to our new two years Master Programme in Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials.
The University of Aveiro, particularly acknowledged for its research concerning the synthesis, properties and applications of nanomaterials, offers a program of study leading to the Ph.D. degree in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. In its first stage, students are introduced to contemporary topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology, comprising several courses in the field and thus initiating a cross-disciplinary approach to research and learning. Different research units at the University contribute actively to this stage. Students admitted to the second stage of the doctoral program follow to N&N activities leading to the elaboration of a doctorate thesis. The courses are taught in English.
The Nanotechnology undergraduate course at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro was created in 2010. After teaching the basic concepts of chemistry, physics and biology, students will learn concepts of nanotechnology applied to one of the three specific areas: Bionanotechnology, Nanotechnology in Physics or Nanotechnology based Materials. (site in Portugese)
This is a strongly multidisciplinary course open to students with different background (physics, chemistry biology, engineering, etc.). Students will learn about fundamental phenomena that are relevant at the nanoscale, approaches to the fabrication and the analysis of nanostructures, as well as advanced nanotechnology applications.
The School focuses on development and application of advanced experimental and theoretical/computational methods for the study of matter and systems at the micro and nano-scale. The program has a strongly interdisciplinary character: it ranges from physics to chemistry, biology and engineering.
The institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences (IMCN) conducts multidisciplinary research at the intersection fields of materials (starting from the atomic and molecular levels), electronics and biology. The institute studies new chemistry and physics, exploiting novel principles in nanostructured devices with new functionalities. The research deals with the synthesis, design, handling, modelling and implementation of (bio)molecules, (bio)surfaces and solid materials. The functions, properties or reactivity of these novel (nano)structures are investigated and characterized by advanced techniques, or predicted by numerical simulations.
La spécialité 'Optique et NanoTechnologies' s'appuie principalement sur une des équipes de recherche de l'ICD, le laboratoire de Nanotechnologies et d'Instrumentation Optique. La formation se situe essentiellement dans le domaine des microscopies et spectroscopies optiques à sonde locale et une familiarisation aux autres microscopies. Les principaux thèmes de recherche abordés sont tournÚs vers les nanosciences.
La spécialité Optique et Nanotechnologies (ONT) de la Master Sciences, Technologies et Santé propose une formation principalement dans le domaine des microscopies et spectroscopies optiques à sonde locale et une familiarisation aux autres microscopies (AFM, STM).
The Laboratory of Nanotechnology, Instrumentation and Optics (LNIO) is tasked with the development of nano-optics, which addresses a number of technological, scientific and socio-economic challenges. Researchers at LNIO are working on new concepts and approaches, developing both innovative instrumentation and nanocharacterization and nanomanufacturing methods.
This interdisciplinary master programme in physics, chemistry and biology, equips students with in-depths knowledge in their field of study while they are being immersed in an exceptional research environment: the international scientific community of Grenoble which includes the UJF laboratories, the Grenoble INP, the CEA Grenoble, the CNRS and major research centers such as the synchrotron (ESRF) and the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL).
The Micro & Nanotechnology specialty trains professionals and researchers with a good knowledge of industrial applications of microsystems and nanosciences: characterization, manufacturing & integration.
The main promising applications are forecast in the fields of optical interconnects in CMOS integrated circuits and optical communications, where silicon can provide low cost solutions. Strong potential also exists in the development of silicon nanostructures for biophotonics. Studies in this field have been performed for many years in this group (MINAPHOT). They mainly work on the design, the fabrication of test devices in our cleanroom and the characterization.
