29 departments and junior research groups from different faculties outline the scientific Institute for Micro- and Nanotechnologies (IMN) which is formed with the aim to collaboratively perform research and training in an interdisciplinary manner in the sectors of materials research, the patterning of micro- and nanostructures, upto the realization of complete devices and systems for industrial applications.
Methodologies leading toward control of matter at the nanoscale. For top-down fabrication methods like lithography, writing, or stamping are used to define the desired features. The bottom-up techniques exploit self-processes for ordering of supramolecular or solid state architectures from the atomic to the mesosopic scale.
The Centre for Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials at the Technical University Munich is devoted to research, development and teaching in the area of nanoscience, nanotechnology, associated materials science and life science.
CEN houses 7 new microscopes built by FEI ranging from a standard SEM instrument to two highly specialized Titan TEMs. The new unit represents an exciting opportunity that will allow DTU and Denmark to be at the forefront of research utilizing all forms of electron microscopy and will be available for use by both in-house and external users.
The main objective of the Danish National Research Foundation Center for Individual Nanoparticle Functionality (CINF) at DTU is to explore and understand the fundamental relations between surface morphology and reactivity on the nanometer scale.
MIC is the department for micro- and nanotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark.MIC's mission is to: educate scientists and engineers, conduct research and development in micro and nanotechnology, and transfer new technologies to Danish industry, through joint programmes.
The Biotechnological Centre (BIOTEC) of the Technische Universität Dresden is a unique interdisciplinary centre focussing on research and teaching in molecular bio-engineering. The BIOTEC hosts top international research groups dedicated to genomics, proteomics, biophysics, cellular machine, tissue engineering, and bioinformatics.
The program Molecular Bioengineering aims to teach students the fundamentals in biomedicine and bio-nanotechnology combining biology and technology, which are linked in two ways: On the one hand, biological knowledge on cells is applied to develop the notion of molecular factories; on the other hand, nanotechnology and bioinformatics are enabling technologies applicable to engineer biomaterials for medical applications.
The 2-year master program aims to teach students the fundamentals in biophysics and bio-nanotechnology with a twofold aim: to use nanotechnological approaches to better characterize and understand complex molecular machines such as biomolecules, but also to harness these molecules in technological systems or use them as templates or model systems for a bottom-up nanotechnology.
The Master's Program in Organic and Molecular Electronics is designed to provide students with professional skills needed to advance a successful international career in the cutting edge field of organic electronics. It offers an interdisciplinary study program comprising physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and materials science. The close collaboration with industry partners enables a highly practice-oriented education. Moreover, we strongly focus on developing soft skills required in an everyday professional lives of our future graduates, such us project management, patent law, and much more.
The group is dealing with the development and the application of structure determination methods in solids down to atomic resolution. The intention is to correlate the structure with physical properties.
The center provides a state-of-the art environment for teaching the fundamental techniques used to fabricate new semiconductor devices. The main goal of the research and development activities is the transfer of innovative ideas from basic science to device concepts.
Supported equally by the Russell Berrie Foundation, the Government of Israel through TELEM, and Technion, RBNI aims at positioning the Technion and the State of Israel at the forefront of global nanotechnology research and development.
The LNBD laboratory focuses on the development and study of new generation of nanomaterial-based devices, with an emphasis on developing new fabrication approaches and understanding the fundamental mechanisms of the structural assembly. the group uses both the bottom-up and top-down paradigms as the underlying approach for exploring new devices and applications in diverse areas. These include the interface between nanomaterial-based electronic nose devices and disease diagnosis and ecology monitoring, molecule-based (opto)electronic devices, electrical contacts to organic molecules, and electronic charge transport via organic molecules.
The following Technion academic units participate in this interdisciplinary program: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Materials Engineering and Bio-medical Engineering.
