The Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology at the Harvard School of Public Health draws on decades of experience with environmental pollutants and the health effects of particles to address the unique environmental health and safety (EHS) concerns raised by engineered nanomaterials (ENM) and nanotechnology applications.
CNS was created to assist and support the research community of Harvard University researchers and collaborators. The inclusion of CNS in the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network has expanded that function.
The Westervelt Group has three areas of focus: 1) Imaging the coherent flow of electrons inside semiconductor nanostructures at low temperatures using scanning probe microscopy; 2) Studies of tunnel-coupled quantum dots and the fabrication of artificial molecules composed of few-electron quantum dots to implement qubits for quantum information processing; 3) Development of micro-electromagnets to trap, move, and assemble particles.
The Zhuang research lab works on the forefront of single-molecule biology and bioimaging, developing and applying advanced optical imaging techniques to study the behavior of individual biological molecules and complexes in vitro and in live cells.
The NanoMaterials Group is among the top aerosol technology laboratories in the world and offers a unique environment for strong interdisciplinary research and a proven track record of productive cooperation. The main research areas of the group are synthesis and mechanistic studies of formation of carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles, pharmaceutical materials, electron microscopy, and computational fluid dynamics modelling.
This programme is attractive to students with an interdisciplinary interest in chemistry, physics and mathematics, and their engineering applications. Chemists have always been nanotechnologists because molecules are about one thousandth-millionth of a metre in size. The programme combines core Chemistry with Nanochemistry, Nanophysics and Microengineering. Nanotechnology finds application (and will expand into new applications) in areas as diverse as Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicine, Microelectronics, Communications and Aerospace.
This 4-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.

Hokkaido Innovation through NanoTechnology Support (HINTS) is a nanotechnology support project centered at Hokkaido University (Research Institute for Electronic Science, Catalysis Research Center, Center for Advanced Research of Energy Conversion Materials, and Research Center for Integrated Quantum Electronics) with close cooperation of Chitose Institute of Science and Technology.
Research activity of the MBE Electronics Group is based on the advanced semiconductor nanotechnology utilizing molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) crystal growth and a unique UHV (ultra-high vacuum)-based multi-chamber system.
The main objective of this Research Group is to carry out intensive research on formation of compound semiconductor nanostructures and their high-density arrays by utilizing metalorganic vapor-phase epitaxial (MOVPE) growth.
At the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), the School of Science and the School of Engineering jointly offer Nano Science and Nano Technology Postgraduate Programs that integrate different disciplines in both science and engineering. The School of Science offers MPhil and PhD Program in Nano Science and Technology (NSNT) and the School of Engineering offers Nanotechnology Concentration.
The mission is to establish an Institute for the development of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies that have multiple applications and product potentials in partnership with industry, and other educational and research institutions.
