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.
Main research interests include soft condensed matter physics, electrorheological and magnetorheological fluids, field-induced pattern and structure transitions, micro- and nano-fluidic controlling, microsphere and nanoparticle fabrications, thin film physics, band gap materials, metamaterials and nonlinear optical materials.
The HNF is an established centralized user facility containing over $10M of micro- and nano fabrication and characterization equipment, accessible by external and internal academic, government and industrial users.
The Organophotonics Research Group has three separate nanotechnology projects at the moment. They involve composite structures of II-IV semiconductor nanocrystals or nanotubes in organic polymer matrices for electroluminescent displays or photovoltaic cells.
