The Columbia University Nanocenter's goal is to establish new paradigms for information processing using the characteristics of electron transport unique to nanoscale molecular structures. Founded in 2001, the Nanocenter draws upon years of experience in chemical synthesis to design molecular structures with carefully crafted properties.
Established as one of 6 interdisciplinary Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers to address the existing challenges and opportunities that are to be found in nanotechnology research and development.
The group investigates the physics and applications of nanoscale photonic structures. In particular, they are interested in light confining structures that can slow down, trap, enhance and manipulate light. Photonic structures can enhance light-matter interactions by orders of magnitude.The applications of the devices that the group designs, fabricates and demonstrates are numerous: on-chip light modulation (optically and electro-optically) and detection, networks on-chip, nonlinear phenomena, multi-material devices and platforms, microfluidics, basic physics, etc.
The group of Prof. Carl A. Batt is engaged in basic and applied research in a wide range of topics. One area of focus in on the use of protein engineering / expression techniques for developing recombinant anti-cancer therapeutics. Another active area of research involves the design and engineering of portable sensor devices using leading-edge micro- and nanofabrication methods. The third major area of investigation in our lab explores how biomaterials may be used to develop novel methodologies for creating advanced microfluidic systems and nanostructured arrays for bioanalytical applications.
The Center for Nanomaterials Engineering & Technology is an established interdisciplinary research center, now open to the public. The center's strengths lie in supporting innovative research, wide ranging applications as well as accelerating the development of technologies. The Center for Nanomaterials Engineering & Technology houses the premier tools, instruments and equipment for nanoscale materials synthesis, research and development.
The Craighead research group at Cornell focuses on creating nanoscale devices using established and newly-developed techniques. A major motivation is to develop methods to pattern, sort, and analyze biological materials.
The McEuen Group runs the Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics at Cornell. Reaerch focus is on proberties of carbon nanotubes, SPM of nanostructures, single molecule electronics and applications of nanoelectronics in chemistry and biology
The Muller group is the research group of Prof. David A. Muller, a faculty member of the Applied and Engineering Physics department of Cornell University. The group's research typically centres around the investigation of the underlying physics of functional nanostructures, primarily by the application of advanced microscopic and spectroscopic techniques.
Nanobiotechnology is an emerging area of scientific and technological opportunity. It applies the tools and processes of nano/microfabrication to build devices for studying biosystems. Researchers also learn from biology how to create better micro-nanoscale devices. The Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC), a National Science Foundation, Science and Technology Center is characterized by its highly interdisciplinary nature and features a close collaboration between life scientists, physical scientists, and engineers
This Masters in Applied Nanotechnology course you will investigate the potential of applying nanotechnology through smart and functional materials to transform whole sectors of industry from healthcare to energy. This MSc course covers the technologies to design, realise and analyse micro and nano-scale devices, materials and systems.
The Surface Engineering and Nanotechnology Institute (SENTi) is a world-leading Centre of excellence for innovative research into atomistic and particulate based manufacturing techniques for the production of protective and active surface coating systems with a mission to transform innovative manufacturing research into engineered products. The Institute is led by Professor John Nicholls.
The research undertaken by the group ranges from government-funded fundamental research to confidential one-on-one industrial projects. The NRI is also part of the West Australian Nanochemistry Institute (WANRI) that comprises groups from Curtin University, Murdoch University and the University of Western Australia.
The group studies the link between structure and mechanical properties in biological systems. They are particularly interested in self-assembled protein filaments like collagen fibrils, intermediate filaments and myosin thick filaments.
This unique interdisciplinary Master's course in NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicine addresses persons who have a university degree or a technical bachelor qualification in a natural science, medical or engineering subject. Admission requirements: Candidates with a bachelor's degree or an academic degree inscience, dentistry, biotechnology, pharmacy, engineering or medicinemay submit applications for the Master of NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicineprogram.
Dartmouth has been designated as a Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNE). The CCNE places Dartmouth among top centers in cancer nanotechnology research nationwide. CCNEs are tasked with integrating nanotechnology into basic and applied cancer research in order to provide new solutions for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in conjunction with Dartmouth College and Thayer School of Engineering, has a community of scientists, clinicians, and engineers, focused on the enormous potential of nanotechnology for improving cancer diagnostics and therapy. The group pulls together these diverse communities for educational and research purposes.
Since its inception in 1987, the Institute has been a bright source of creativity and innovation at the edge of microelectronic science. DIMES integrates nanoscale and high-speed device physics, material science and process technology, circuit design, and embedded system design methodology in one institute.
The department focuses on the functioning of single cells in all their complexity down to the molecular level. Understanding the mechanisms operating inside a cell is very useful for practical applications in, for example, improved health care, molecularly targeted medicine, and development of new energy sources. The department of Bionanoscience is part of the university's successful Kavli Institute of Nanoscience.
As of September 2010 the MSc in Nanoscience will no longer be offered in cooperation with Leiden University. At TU Delft Nanoscience will be offered as a track within the Applied Physics MSc programme.
