The Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a collaborative nanoscience user research facility for the synthesis, characterization, theory, modeling, simulation, and design of nanoscale materials. It is one of five Nanoscale Science Research Centers currently being established by the Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy.
FENA's research mission is 'To create and investigate new nano-engineered functional materials and devices, and novel structural and computational architectures for new information processing systems beyond the limits of conventional CMOS technology.'
FENA aims to create and investigate new nano-engineered functional materials and devices, and novel structural and computational architectures for new information processing systems beyond the limits of conventional CMOS technology.
The Ingber laboratory is interested in the general mechanism of cell and developmental regulation. The lab also has shown that extracellular matrix and cell shape distortion play central roles in control of angiogenesis that is required for tumor growth and expansion, and has developed numerous novel microtechnologies, nanotechnologies, magnetic control systems and computational models in the course of pursuing these studies.
DARPA is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense. It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions. DARPA manages a number of nanotechnology projects.
The mission of the Micro and Nano Structures Organization is to apply frontier research knowledge and engineering techniques to synthesize, manipulate, and modify materials to create novel electronic devices, photonic devices, integrated structures and machines.
The participants in the Consortium of Maine Biological Nanotechnology Effort Consortium (MBNE) cuts across the fields of marine science, bioengineering, astrobiology, medicine and ecucation. This site is an introduction to biological nanotechnology.
