The University of California, Los Angeles and University of California, Santa Barbara have joined to build the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), which will facilitate a multidisciplinary approach to develop the information, biomedical, and manufacturing technologies that will dominate science and the economy in the 21st century
The aim of the Centre is to provide a contral focus for nanoscience research in Cambridge, housing both a wide range of research equipment and office accomodation for researchers working on interdisciplinary nanotechnology projects.
Apart from research and development in all major areas of Advanced Manufacturing the Centre offers a service providing rapid prototyping, tooling and micro/nanofabrication (EDM, wire EDM, milling, laser ablation, FIB machining/deposition, hot embossing, injection moulding, nano-imprinting) to companies in the UK and beyond.
This concentration allows students to study atoms and molecules used to create computer chips and other devices that are the size of a few nanometres - thousands of times smaller than current technology permits. Such discoveries will be useful in a number of fields, including aerospace, medicine, and electronics.
At Carleton, you will examine nanoscience through the disciplines of physical chemistry and electrical engineering to understand the physical, chemical and electronic characteristics of matter in this size regime. The combination of these two areas of study will equip you to fully understand nanoscience in photonic, electronic, energy and communication technologies. The focus of the program will be on materials - their use in electronic devices, their scalability and control of their properties.
The Center for Silicon System Implementation (CSSI) is focused on all aspects of integrated system design and manufacturing that spans from network-on-achip architectures to self-adaptable analog and digital circuits, to ultra low-power nano devices, bio chips, and the CAD methodologies that enable them.
The center's mission is to pursue an integrated science and engineering program by utilizing emerging carbon nanotechnology to develop new materials, devices and systems. One of their unique strengths is applying advanced synthetic methods to the development of advanced carbon nanomaterials with well-defined, multidimensional structures for multifunctional applications, including electrochemical energy conversion and storage.
The CCNE's goal is goal is to develop and validate nanotechnology so that one will eventually be able to predict which patients will likely respond to a specific anti-cancer therapy and to monitor their response to therapy.
CeNIDE is based on the strongly interdisciplinary research excellence in the area of Nanotechnology at the University Duisburg-Essen. This includes an exceptionally broad knowledge base in fundamental nanoscience, unique fabrication facilities for nanoscale materials in large quantities, and experience in questions of scalability and reliability.
The Center has been established to define the basic chemical and physical principles used by molecular chaperones in the folding of proteins through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches. The goal is to engineer protein machines that can assist in the folding of any protein of interest, as well as develop strategies to alleviative or prevent protein misfolding associated with a number of human diseases.
The goal of COINS is to develop and integrate cutting-edge nanotechnologies into a versatile platform with various ultra-sensitive, ultra-selective, self-powering, mobile, wirelessly communicating detection applications.
O Programa de Pós-Graduação Stricto Sensu em Nanociências tem como objetivos: Qualificar recursos humanos através de uma formação multidisciplinar para atuar em atividades de Ensino e Pesquisa; Contribuir para o desenvolvimento regional e nacional na área de Nanociências; Produzir conhecimentos e promover a disseminação e a consolidação da Nanociência, mediante o desenvolvimento de pesquisas que possibilitem inovações tecnológicas;
The research at BioNano Systems Laboratory focuses on nanoscale materials, device structures and components based on silicon materials, circuits and microsystems including molecular and biological elements.
The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored to students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both regarding the fundamentals of nanoscience and how to design and build components on the nanoscale.
The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
Large efforts, experimental as well as theoretical, are directed at materials, devices and subsystems for future micro/nanoelectronics in the fields of microwave electronics, quantum devices, photonics, micro- and nanosystems, superconducting devices and circuits and molecular electronics just to mention a few.
The Nanofabrication Laboratory is a world-class university cleanroom for research into and fabrication of micro and nano technology. The laboratory is run by the department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers, but is an open user facility for external as well as internal academic and industrial interests.
