This interdisciplinary materials science and engineering track provides a strong foundation for nanoscience and nanotechnology and is designed to prepare MSE majors for future interdisciplinary careers, for graduate research programs in materials science, nanotechnology, bioengineering and other disciplines.
The research group of MinJun Kim is experimentally investigating the mechanics of fluids at small scales including the behavior of biological materials in micro- and nanofabricated structures.
The Spanier Group at the MesoMaterials Lab at Drexel uses variable temperature scanning probe microscopy to probe selected physical, electronic, mechanical, magnetic and optical properties of nanostructures.
Research in the Kim Group includes nanofabrication and microfabrication for biological applications, micro- and nanofluidics and bacteria actuation, sensing, and transport at the micro/nanoscale.
Research in the Nanomaterials Group is focused on the fundamental and applied aspects of synthesis and characterization of carbon nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanodiamond and nanoporous carbons), ceramic nanoparticles (whiskers, nanowires, etc) and composites.
On the Physics and Nanotechnology programme students learn how to design and manufacture materials using the smallest components available - atoms and molecules. They can work on the development of optical communications, biosensors, and the energy supply of the future, for example.
The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology covers a wide range of technological, theoretical, and experimental techniques in modern physics. The applications include various topics, such as the development of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, modelling of complex biological systems, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy - e.g. fuel cells and hydrogen technology.
The Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology - DTU Nanotech - is a highly esteemed research institution within the field of micro- and nanotechnology. Applied science, innovation strategies and state-of-the-art technology form our core identity as a scientific institution. We encourage technology transfer and technology development through industry collaboration, and industrial PhD students are an integrated part of our PhD programme.
The nanotech aspects of their research deal with in-situ visualization of biomembrane activity; nanometer dimensioned electrodes and fibre optics; self-assembling molecular and polymer materials; biomaterials as linkers for self-assembling molecular electronics, security applications and multiplexed sensing and nanophase biolithography.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are built upon chemistry and physics. This degree is a solid science degree (physics and chemistry) but with a unique focus on nanoscience and nanotechnology. In the Years 3 and 4 of the degree the student chooses to major in either physics or chemistry, but all students do the nanotechnology modules.
The mission of the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics is to continue to advance the basic understanding of electromagnetic metamaterials, exploring their capabilities and limitations across the electromagnetic spectrum. They want to develop fabrication techniques for metamaterials that may operate in various environments, with a particular emphasis on structures designed for terahertz, telecommunications and optical wavelengths.
The Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) is dedicated to elucidating the relationship between a vast array of nanomaterials ? from natural, to manufactured, to those produced incidentally by human activities - and their potential environmental exposure, biological effects, and ecological consequences. Headquartered at Duke University, CEINT is a collaboration between Duke, Carnegie Mellon University, Howard University, and Virginia Tech and investigators from the University of Kentucky and Stanford University.
Research topics are: Nanotubes and Nanowires; Cryogenic scanning microscopy; Self-assembled DNA templates; Nanocrystal Single-Electron Transistor
The graduate program is designed to address the need for an interdisciplinary graduate education at Duke in Nanoscience that extends beyond the traditional disciplines and skills that are taught within any existing department.
The Fitzpatrick Center for Photonics and Communications Systems at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering aims to help turn North Carolina into a photon forest where research and development in photonics can create the kind of technological advance and economic growth found in California's Silicon Valley.
The Liu Laboratory at Duke University pursues research in the field of nanomaterials, synthesizing and studying materials with size of nanometers.
The Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center (E2TAC) addresses the needs of advanced energy and environmental applications by leveraging the intellectual power base and state-of-the-art infrastructure at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) and making use of its extensive capabilities in microelectronics and nanotechnology.
Created in 2003 the NanoMaDe team (NanoMAterials & DEvices) is involved in the field of nanotechnology and nanoscience, particularly on topics related to the carbon nanotubes, graphene and semiconductor nanowires synthesis, as well as their collective organization, deposition on various substrates, in deep characterization and integration into advanced electronic devices (field effect transistors, gas or biological sensors, NEMS, field emission micro-cathodes and other applications).
With the foundation of the Center for NanoMaterials (CNM) the TU/e strives to give a strong impulse to the fundamental and technological research of materials and devices with critical dimensions in the (sub)nanometer region. The center should foster a further integration of the existing excellent research activities on nanotechnology by facilitating multidisciplinary research, promoting exchange of expertise and the expansion of the available infrastructure.
The laboratory covers a range of research fields between organic synthesis, macromolecular chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, combinatorial material research as well as nanoscience.
The special Master's track Nano-engineering lasts two years. Each year consists of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). Formally this programme is part of the master program Applied Physics. Nano-Engineering forms part of the joint activities in the field of Nanoscience & Technology of the TU/e and the Radboud University of Nijmegen.
