The department offers programs of study and research in the major areas of biofunctional polymer chemistry, applied organic chemistry, organic process and catalyst chemistry, chemical physics of condensed matters, analytical science, materials design chemistry, and function development technology including nanoparticulate systems.
The lab aims to develop the bases of future nano-electronics. Their main subjects are novel electron devices and optoelectronic devices using carbon nanotubes, high-power and high-frequency GaN transistors, and resonant-tunneling devices and functional circuits.
The Case Western reserve University nanoBook is an interactive directory that highlights the ongoing nanoscience/nanotechnolgy research activities of our faculty across the university. Please browse through the nanoBook by faculty last name, department, or by choosing a field of interest.
The Research center NanoQAM is a grouping of five laboratories in nanotechnologies of the Université du Québec à Montréal which offer their knowledge and expertise in nanomanufacturing using polymers, development of high-energy nanomaterials, renewable energies, nanoimaging, green chemistry as well as the development of biological membranes, biomaterials and biosensors. NanoQAM allows access to its infrastructures and scientific equipment, either for industries and other academic institutions.
The main research focus of the Laboratory is to pioneer in the development of new instrumented platforms and techniques through nanorobotics by exploiting the unique properties of molecular scale entities. The main areas of applications are in medicine and bioengineering, including supporting new robotic platforms for nanomanufacturing or high-throughput automatic operations at the nanoscale.
Many new nanotechnology research fields require a high degree of precision in both observing and manipulating materials at the atomic level. The advanced nanorobotics technology needed to manipulate materials at the nanoscale is being developed in the new Sheffield NANOLAB.
The Nanosystems Biology Cancer Center (NSBCC) is organized to take advantage of the state-of-the-art in chemistry, materials, and physics of nanotechnology science and engineering, the state-of-the-art in systems biology approach to health and disease, and the state-of-the-art in the science, technology, and clinical applications of cancer biology.
Center of Excellence in Nanotechnology at Prince of Songkla University was established in 2006 under the collaboration among researcher from three faculties; Sciences, Pharmacy and Engineering. The Center's main focus is on nanomaterials.
The Nanoelectronics Group is hosted by the Nanoelectronics Laboratory (NEL), which was established in Sept 2006, mainly from the former Ion Beam Processing Laboratory. The group conducts, promotes, and nurtures interdisciplinary research and education activities in nanoscale science and technology. Its research activities are in five main fields: oxide based nanoelectronics; computational nanoelectronics; carbon based nanoelectronics; organic nanoelectronics; solar cells.
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 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
